“The city of Miami on Monday moved to terminate its police chief, a nationally known law official who has been outspoken in his criticism of local leaders. ‘Today, I suspended Police Chief Art Acevedo with the intent to terminate his employment,’ City Manager Art Noriega said in a statement. Noriega hired Acevedo away from his top position with the Houston Police Department in March. Under Miami’s charter, the suspension is a necessary first step in a process of removing the department’s chief. … Acevedo has accused his elected superiors of interfering with police investigations and compared their actions to government behavior in Communist Cuba. His remarks stung many in the city’s influential Cuban American community. Acevedo was born in Cuba and came to the United States as a child. He grew up in Southern California and led the California Highway Patrol after starting there as a patrol officer in 1986.” (10/12/21)
