Miami Police were given a Rolls-Royce for a shocking reason that no one expected

Miami, Florida has become a playground for the ultrawealthy.

Affluence in the city is spreading to its law enforcement.

And Miami Police were given a Rolls-Royce for a shocking reason that no one expected.

Miami Police debut a 2012 Rolls-Royce as their latest vehicle

Recruiting has become a problem for police departments across the nation after George Floyd’s death in the spring of 2020.

Democrats and their media allies began bashing the police nonstop and blaming them for society’s woes.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) helped launch the disastrous “Defund the Police” movement that saw many police departments forced to make painful cutbacks.

The police have a tough job and now they must deal with constant disrespect.

Now the Miami Beach Police Department is getting creative to recruit new officers to the force.

They debuted on social media a 2012 Rolls-Royce Ghost that was painted like one of the department’s squad cars.

“Crafted with Precision: Miami Beach police officers and professional staff exemplify the highest standards of dedication and quality policing in our unparalleled commitment to the residents and visitors we serve,” the Miami Beach Police Department said on social media.

“We are thrilled to introduce this stunning addition to the MBPD recruitment team — courtesy of [Braman Motors],” the department added.

Braman Motors is a local car dealership that sells high-end models like Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and Bugatti.

Controversy ensues after Miami Beach unveils Rolls-Royce

Users on social media questioned why the Miami Beach Police Department would have a Rolls-Royce.

“I’d rather MBPD auction the car off and have bought extra gear and training the officers need,” a user commented. “The money in the rolls Royce could have provided officer safety, instead it comes off as hubris.”

“I don’t know why but I feel like jaywalking repeatedly in Miami Beach so I might get a ride in that,” another user added.

Others thought that the vehicle was absurd.

“Is this an episode of Reno 911?” one user said. “This has to be a joke.”

Social media commentators wondered how the Miami Beach Police Department produced the money for a Rolls-Royce.

Miami Beach Police Department Public Information officer Christopher Bess told the Miami Herald that Braman Motors was providing the vehicle at no cost to taxpayers.

“We have not absorbed any cost for this vehicle,” Bess said. “Miami Beach taxpayers didn’t pay anything for this.”

The Rolls-Royce Ghost originally sold for $250,000 in 2012 and requires $2,000 oil changes.

Braman Motors is loaning the vehicle to the police department which will eventually return it.

Billionaire Norman Braman, the dealership’s owner, is a noted philanthropist in the Miami area.

Bess claimed that “traditional methods of recruitment” are “no longer sufficient in addressing the diverse needs and aspirations of the next generation of law enforcement professionals.”

“By embracing innovation and creativity, we can attract individuals who embody the values of integrity, service, and excellence that are central to our profession,” Bess added.

The Miami Beach Police Department is getting creative to solve its staffing shortage.
