Protest the North Miami Beach Police Department for Using Mugshots for Target Practice

Last week, it came to light that snipers from the North Miami Beach Police Department were using arrest photographs for target practice at the Medley Firearms Training Center. Police chief J. Scott Dennis defended the practice, stating that the officers involved were being trained in facial recognition and that the practice is widely used in law enforcement. He further said that there were minority officers who were involved in the training. Nevertheless, community reaction has been swift and negative.. Power U and the Miami Committee on State Violence have organized a protest that will be held on January 20 at 6pm at the North Miami Beach Police Headquarters located at 16901 NE 19th Avenue, North Miami Beach, FL 33162.
