Miramar Cops Under Investigation After Bad-Mouthing Commissioner on Recorded Line

Miramar Commissioner Alexandra Davis
Miramar police have launched an investigation into whether officers disrespected a city commissioner -- on tape.

It all started when Miramar Commissioner Alexandra Davis stopped by the police station on Good Friday to pick up tickets for a Caribbean festival.

Davis' tickets weren't ready, so she called the police chief. She didn't think much of it. But once she left, the switchboard lit up.

According to audio obtained by the Pulp, Miramar police officials can be heard calling Davis "downright nasty," "rude," "miserable," and "a wrath of God."

"Nothing personal, but her shit doesn't smell any better than mine," said Miramar  Police Department Communications Officer Bonnie Borgmann.

Another officer responded: "No, no, you're right -- that's how they are."

In between hurling insults, Borgmann answered the police line: "Miramar police, serving our community -- how can I help you?"

Once an officer identified himself on the line -- and it wasn't someone calling for emergency help -- it was back to ripping into Davis.

"Every time there's one of these Caribbean events!" a male officer told Borgmann. "How ethical is it for somebody to take free tickets and then get one for her boyfriend too?"

Borgmann quickly cut him off to tell him: "And he's as white as snow."

"Oh, is he?" the officer asked, as if that were something serious.

Later, Borgmann adds: "I'll run her DL [driver's license] to see if it's suspended."

The officer responds: "Uh-huh, yeah."

At one point, Borgmann paused: "I'd better keep my mouth shut; I'm on a taped line."

By then, it was too late. All calls to the city's police communications center are taped and were released to the Pulp through a public records request after a tip about the interoffice phone calls.

"The tapes don't lie," said Glenn Rice, Davis' assistant -- not boyfriend -- who was present with her the afternoon she went to pick up the tickets. "She conducted herself like a lady the entire time she was at the station." Rice said Davis did not want to comment pending the department's investigation.

"In light of your public records request, we became aware of the recordings and are investigating the matter internally," said Tania Rues, a public information officer for Miramar PD. "This precludes us from commenting further."

I know cops ain't angels but this beast is a dictator.  She is disrespectful and rude and does indeed walk around like she is the queen and treats residents who are different than her like garbage.  This isn't the first corrupt act that she has committed.  Now that the New Times has used this to score a point against a-hole cops (there are a lot of them), I wish it would take some time looking a little closer into the activities of Davis at City Hall.  And BTW, go ahead and google "Glenn Rice Hialeah" to get an idea of the kinds of people she hires.

I may be mistaken but isn't accepting gratuities such as free concert tickets and free VIP parking only because you're an elected official the same issues all these other elected officials throughout Dade, Broward and Palm Beach are being investigated for?

Based on the article, Commissioner Davis was clearly ostracized by the Miramar Police Department. Unmistakably what was said by the Police Department employee’s revealed blatant disrespect for an elected public official who is also their manager’s boss. That is totally unacceptable in any shape fashion or form. This article also reveals racial comments “white as snow” as well as arbitrarily checking Commissioner Davis driver license for no apparent reason (abuse of power). Those employees (the bad apples) that took part in this hateful and racial maligning attack on Commissioner Davis should be terminated immediately. There is no room in 2011 or at any time for this type of attitude and behavior, especially in our police department whom we should be able to trust to protect and serve us. Moreover, what if the same employees behaved in the same manner pertaining to the Mayor, City Manager, Public Safety Director, or the Police Chief; would they still be employed as Police Officers or working for the City of Miramar? There should be a zero tolerance for this type of behavior.

I don't understand what being white as snow has to do with anything or why someone would say that.

I agree with running her DL is a violation, but I would like to see a criminal history of each person who runs for  office made public.  It might stop some of the problems we are now having.

Why would the police  run a commissioners driver license over complimentary tickets? Sounds kind of suspicious on the cops part!

The most out of line action reported in this article was a city commissioner phoning the police chief because tickets weren't ready. She used her position to get speicial treatment from an institution which is forbidden by Florida statute. Davis should be ashamed of that. The police were within their first amendment rights because they were speaking about their personal feelings, not their feelings as policemen. Running the DL was questionable though.

Actually, running the DL through the DAVID system as they did is illegal.

Your point about using her position is iffy at best. If other Commissioners were given tickets, then Davis is not using her position for special pecuniary gain. If the value of the tickets exceeded $100, then she would need to declare them.

Your point about characterizing comments made by uniformed employees is so ludicrous it begs the question "are you high"?

On a positive note, the minimum wage just rose a dime, so when these nuckleheads are out looking for work, things just got a tad better financially for them.
