MIAMI GARDENS, FL. – The Miami Dolphins Football UNITES™ program as part of its Huddle for the Holidays initiative presented by Truist celebrated National Police Week (May 15 – 21) hosting a series of events with South Florida Police Departments in an effort to recognize and appreciate local law enforcement officers.
During the week, the program visited law enforcement at the Miami-Gardens Police Department, Fort Lauderdale Police Department and North Miami Police Department distributing Dolphins giveaways and meals from partnering Miami Dolphins Food Relief Program minority-owned restaurants including Adam’s Catering, Troy’s BBQ and SEED Miami.
Additionally, Miami Dolphins Football UNITES™ highlighted its participation as a conference contributor in the 26th Annual National Association of Women Law Enforcement Executives (NAWLEE). Miami Dolphins representatives Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer Kim Rometo and Senior Director of Community Relations & Youth Programs RaShauna Hamilton were in attendance to award Miami Gardens Chief of Police Delma Noel-Pratt with the Miami Dolphins Football UNITES™ Award in recognition of her service to the Miami Gardens community.
This initiative is in continuation of the Football UNITES™ presented by Baptist Health’s efforts towards encouraging police, youth and community relations. Through supporting local law enforcement programs including Big Brother Big Sisters Miami Bigs in Blue, Miami-Dade Schools Police Explorers, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement (NOBLE), PALs of South Florida, Tour de Force and the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project Police & Youth Conference, the organization is committed to creating a healthier, more educated and united South Florida community.
These activities align with the Miami Dolphins Football UNITES™ Huddle for the Holidays initiative presented by Truist. The Miami Dolphins organization believes in the importance of celebrating and highlighting the different cultural intersections of the South Florida community. Through identifying and creating opportunities, the organization works to unite groups of individuals from different races, genders, sexual orientations, identities, abilities and faiths around the power of football.
