6346: Lazy Reporting Is A Crime.

The Miami Herald reported on a new museum honoring the area’s first Black police officers. Yet the story looks like a blurb from a local police blotter.

Museum to honor Miami’s first black officers

More than 50 years ago, the first black police officers in Miami were forced to work out of a separate police station.

Soon, the building will open as a museum featuring old photographs and stories of the city’s first black police officers, a mock courtroom, jail cells and an education center.

The museum, at 1009 NW Fifth Ave., will open to the public on Feb. 2. Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. For more information, call 305-416-1300.
