About the Miami Beach Police Department

The Miami Beach Police Department is organized into four large divisions: Criminal Investigations Division; Support Services Division; Patrol Division; and, Technical Services Division. Like most municipal police agencies, the Patrol Division of the Miami Police Department is the largest, in terms of personnel.  The members of the Patrol Division are organized into three geographic districts.


The Criminal Investigations Division is organized into three units: Criminal Investigations; Strategic Investigations; and, the Special Victims Squad.  The Criminal investigations unit is organized by type of crime.  The Strategic Investigations Unit is responsible for the investigations of criminal violations involving narcotics, vice, prostitution, liquor law offenses, and organized crime activity, as well as gathering intelligence to aid in Homeland Defense. The Unit accomplishes this task by working closely with all local, State, and Federal law enforcement agencies. Special Victims detectives investigate crimes by and against juveniles in our community. The cases they handle range from sexual assaults, child and elderly abuse to missing persons and bicycle thefts as well as Internet Child Exploitations.


Among the units in the Support Services Division is the Professional Standards Unit of the Miami Beach Police Department.  The primary responsibility of the Professional Standards Unit is the planning and development of policies, procedures, rules, regulations, and programs which ensure that the Department and its employees maintain the highest level of professional service to the community. This is accomplished via an ongoing monitoring of the Department's operations to guarantee compliance with specific standards and procedures. This unit provides the overall function of quality control for the Department.




Fred Wooldridge served 28 years on law enforcement.  During his career with the Miami Beach Police Department he served 7 years as the SWAT commander.  He retired at the rank of Major.  Fred Wooldridge is the author of I'm Moving Back to Mars.


According to the book description, “Moving Back to Mars is a curl up on the couch, fun book of easy reading, full of short stories that have nothing to do with science fiction or the planet Mars. It is, instead, the author's zany struggle to understand and maintain his relationships with the female species. If he can just accomplish that, he will not have to give in and move home to Mars. Both men and women will love reading his viewpoints on everything from why men ever taught women to play golf to exactly how women have overtaken the world, right under men's noses. This is a book for everyone who enjoys having fun. If laughter comes easy to you, be prepared to hold your sides. At a minimum, he guarantees big smiles as you read each different story and try to understand and figure out his plight. Just when you think you have the author figured out, you'll turn the page and, POW, you are off in a different adventure. Some will say the book is full of convoluted thinking and others will conclude the author is eccentric. While both are correct the book contains a lot more than that. Moving Back to Mars pokes fun of everything from religion to terrorists, from adult children's stories to advice columns. Nothing is sacred in this satire piece of work. When you finish the last page of this book, you will want to start again with Chapter 1 and read it again. Moving Back to Mars is a hilarious look at life.”
