‘We don't welcome mayhem': DeSantis sending more law enforcement to Miami Beach for spring break

March 06, 2024

Ron DeSantis is sending more law enforcement to Miami Beach and other spring break destinations throughout the state in an effort to keep things under control. DeSantis said the state will provide about 60 Florida Florida State troopers in South Florida and an additional 24 that are part of a quick response team. Other law enforcement assets are being sent to spring break hotspots like Daytona Beach and Panama City Beach, DeSantis said. Meiner said he requested the reinforcement and discussed the strict measures the city is implementing in the hopes of "putting an end to spring break" in the city. A chaotic 2023 spring break in Miami Beach saw two deadly shootings and 488 arrests — more than 230 of which were felony offenses, according to Miami Beach Police.
