MIAMI – A group of police officers played fairy godmother to give an active member of the Miami Police Department’s explorer program a memorable Cinderella moment.

Denisha Palmer is a 17-year-old Miami Springs High School senior and aspiring FBI agent, but on Friday night, she was a star in a ruby red dress. The police officers from the North District substation who are her extended family came through during a difficult time.

Shaute Palmer, Denisha’s mother, was delighted. After graduating from high school, Denisha is going to Florida Memorial University to study criminal justice.
