Good afternoon,
I just spoke to the PIO commander and he informed me that the May Day protests in Miami centered around the Stephen P. Clark Center, 111 NW First Street. Though technically within the City of Miami limits, the building is a County building. Therefore, law enforcement of any protests there fall under the Miami-Dade County police jurisdiction. I suggest reaching out to their PIO.
Regards,

Okay, I have sent them their own records request. Just to double check, MPD has no records in their possession dealing with any protests on May 1st?

Sincerely,
Curtis Waltman

From: Rodriguez, Orlando

I will double-check and let you know. In the meantime, did you receive any word from the County?
As I previously mentioned, the only May Day rally may have happened occurred at the county property (Though I have not seen any local media coverage of such an event). Do you know of any other possible protest locations within the City of Miami limits?
