Entornointeligente.com / More than a year and a half after a North Miami policeman shot a behavioral therapist in the middle of the road as he tried to coax an autistic man back into a group home ? a shooting that roiled the police department ? the city has finally named a new top cop.

Larry Juriga Jr., who has been with the North Miami police department for 24 years after starting as a patrol officer in 1994, will assume the title immediately. He is following in the footsteps of his father, Larry Juriga Sr., who retired in 1996 from the department as deputy chief.

?I am extremely humbled, honored and so proud to serve the city I grew up in and it?s an absolute privilege to work with the great men and women in the department,? Juriga Jr. said Thursday night. ?We are moving forward together as one department and one community. I am ready to get to work.?

Juriga, who got his first job with North Miami in 1987 in the Parks and Recreation Department, has served as acting chief since May 2017 when former Chief Gary Eugene went on medical leave.
