Miami's Crime History More Photos and Videos A group of Miami-Dade police officers was disciplined following a 2010 internal affairs investigation, police documents showed.
Five police officers and one sergeant with the Kendall squad were allegedly caught on camera ignoring emergency dispatch calls. The video, obtained by NBC 6 South Florida, shows incidents like one on Oct. 5, 2010 where Officer Dario Socarras apparently ignored a residential burglary call and chose to meet a woman at the Dadeland Mall parking lot. The video shows the officer hugging and kissing the woman in what the police investigation calls a public display of affection.
That is classified as departmental misconduct or conduct unbecoming of an officer, according to police.
