Miami Officers Will Have To Check Guns At Door

MIAMI (AP) — A new administrative policy bans police officers from taking their guns next time they attend a Miami city commission meeting unless they are assigned to City Hall or handling a call.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1osRDrZ ) reports the new rule follows a protest in February where dozens of officers who belong to the police union stormed the chambers during a commission meeting. The officers were protesting what they described as unfair cuts to their benefits.

Officers will now have to check their guns at the door before entering the chambers.

Mayor Thomas Regalado and Police Chief Manuel Orosa say city employees and others attending the meeting were concerned that the officers were armed.

Orosa called the protesters a “mob” that left city staffers “in fear for their safety.”
