FDLE’s Miami Regional Operations Center operates in bustling South Florida, home to more than 6.8 million residents, roughly one-third of the state’s population. Serving culturally diverse communities and tourist-heavy populations, its primary office is located in Miami, with Broward, West Palm Beach and Key West field offices. 
MROC agents and analysts work a variety of criminal investigations including violent crime, targeted violence, economic crime, public integrity, narcotics, cyber/high tech crime, officer involved shootings/in-custody deaths, domestic security and intelligence.
FDLE Miami is recognized for its proactive secure-communities initiatives. MROC established the department’s only High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force: “Guns, Gangs, and Drugs Task Force.” MROC wrote and effected FDLE’s first risk protection order, which was in conjunction with a target violence investigation.  
Members in the Miami region significantly contributed to the resolution of several high-profile cases during its history, including the 1985 Miami River Cops corruption investigation, the 1995 abduction and murder of Jimmy Ryce, and the 1997 murder of Gianni Versace in Miami. In December 2021, MROC members helped solve the 1983 Delray Beach cold case murder of Carla Lowe and the 2017 Key Largo murder of Mary Theresa Bonneville. MROC members were also crucial in solving the 2005-2006 serial killer case, for which defendant Robert Hayes was convicted in 2022.
MROC has also led major fraud investigations, resulting in the arrest of criminal actors residing in the region, including the 2019 arrest of a 10-year fugitive who perpetrated a $3 million Coral Springs mortgage loan investor Ponzi scheme, and the 2022 arrest of a pageant director that stole at least $100,000 Children’s Miracle Network donations. 
MROC members were crucial in solving the 2005-2006 Daytona Beach serial killer case, for which defendant Robert Hayes was convicted in 2022.
