Miami_Dade_Schools_Police_Department (1)Miami Dade Schools Police Union 1Larry Lawton was the Master of Ceremonies and Keynote Speaker at the Miami-Dade Schools Police Union Instillation Banquet at the intercontinental hotel in Miami, Florida on January 28, 2017.

Police officers, teachers and the leaders of those agencies are some of the most important people in society. Being on the front-lines and working with the future leaders of our country is job with enormous pressure and responsibility, but with little to no public glory. The reason the people who work with young people do what they do, is because they care deeply about the future of the country and helping young people be the best they can be. Not for the glory to be sure.

Officers, School Resource Officers, Chiefs of Police, Teachers, Principals, Administrators and elected officials who truly care about young people is so rewarding. As a man who works with young people on a daily basis, I can say without reservation, that seeing a young person change and “get it” is the best feeling on the planet.” said Lawton.
