The vote to investigate Miami's Chief of Police Art Acevedo comes after a recent poll from the Fraternal Order of Police Union, revealed that almost 80% of active officers polled do not have confidence in him.

The long meeting, without the chief present, was held after the Acevedo sent an 8-page-memo to Mayor Francis Suarez, alleging city commissioners are interfering with his job. Acevedo revealed he has spoken to the Department of Justice about his claims.

"His conflict is with his own department, he's trying to reframe that debate, to pretend it's political in nature," said Republican Alex Diaz de la Portilla, Miami's Commissioner for District 1.

His other colleague, Joe Carollo, Miami's Commissioner for District 3 claimed Acevedo thinks he can do "whatever he pleases" without accountability.

In August, Acevedo said Miami was run by the "Cuban Mafia," a term used by the Castro regime to describe the Cuban community in Miami. He later apologized for those comments after backlash.
