North Miami Beach, FL, June 16, 2021 --( The Biscayne Gardens Chamber will hold a Press Conference at:

10:00am, Thursday, June 17, 2021, at their offices:
Biscayne Gardens Chamber of Commerce
115 NW 167th Street, 1st Floor, North Miami Beach

Due to the rash of occurrences of gun violence in Miami-Dade County, the Biscayne Gardens Chamber of Commerce has partnered with local municipalities and businesses to sponsor an awareness campaign to encourage residents to embrace, “If you See Something, Say Something” and call, 305-471-TIPS to report all Illegal Weapons suspected in our communities. The campaign consists of 24”X18” Yard Signs that local law enforcement will be engaging with residents in face to face conversation offering to place a sign in the front of their home.

“We are teaming up with area businesses and the City of Miami Gardens, the City of North Miami and the City of North Miami Beach and the Biscayne Gardens Brighter Future PAC to ensure that everyone knows to call 305-471-TIPS (8477) to report illegal activity,” said Dr. h.c. Bernard W.H. Jennings, President & CEO. The Chamber is commissioning the design and delivery of 24"X18" bandit signs to be placed arbitrarily throughout North Miami-Dade. The signs read, “Stop Illegal Gun Violence,” “If you see something, say something.” They intend to place over 5,000 signs. The number enables anonymous phone calls to report illegal gun activity.

People are aware of criminal activity in our communities. “It is time to stop the silence, remove the fear and call 305-471-TIPS,” Jennings said. The call is anonymous and there are financial awards available for information that leads to an arrest.

The following community leaders will be in attendance at the Press Conference:

Senator Daphne Campbell & Hubert Campbell – Their son was tragically murdered two weeks ago
