Governor Ron DeSantis is sending 140 state troopers all over Florida, including Miami Beach, to stop violence during spring break.

This decision comes after two serious shootings in Miami Beach last spring break led to a state of emergency and a rule that everyone had to be inside by midnight. Miami Beach’s mayor says that more than 40 troopers will be sent to help in the city.

Governor DeSantis said on Tuesday, “We’re here to help our local communities keep things in order. We want people to have fun, but we also want them to follow the rules.”

The troopers will work with 17 different law enforcement groups, and there will be a special team of 24 troopers ready to respond quickly in Bay, Volusia, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties.

The troopers will help control crowds, set up checkpoints for drunk drivers, use cameras to read license plates, and guide traffic, according to the governor.

Last week, the Miami City Commission voted for extra security measures in March, including checkpoints at the beach, more checks for drunk driving, and more police from Miami and nearby areas.

Miami Beach’s mayor, Steven Meiner, said, “We will have 45 Florida Troopers in our streets in the next few weeks.”

The city even made a video on YouTube called “Miami Beach Is Breaking Up With Spring Break” to warn people. A midnight curfew was in place last year and again in 2022 after two shootings hurt five people.
