Miami Beach Gets New Top Cop

 
Miami Beach Gets New Top Cop
Posted Wednesday, June 11th 2014 @ 11am

The new police chief for the City of Miami Beach was sworn in Wednesday.

Daniel Oates was previously chief of police in Aurora, Colorado, and, in fact, headed that department at the time of the 2012 movie theatre massacre in that city.

Oates is inheriting plenty of pending issues as he takes the helm at the Miami Beach Police Department.

The Mansion nightclub shooting that happened earlier this week and claimed the life of a man who was a chef for local athletes remains unsolved.

The 2011 police-involved shootings during Urban Beach Week are still under investigation by the state attorney's office.

And, the family of teen Israel Hernandez who was killed by a police taser is still looking for answers from the department and is still asking for the firing of the officer who administered the deadly tasering.
