Opa-Locka is located in the northwest part of Miami-Dade County and one of the most economically distraught and crime inflicted communities in the state of Florida.
In 2004, Opa-Locka had the highest crime rate in the United States. It seems, since shortly after the city was founded in 1926, that the area has been plagued with unfortunate circumstances. Troubles in the city began with the 1926 Miami Hurricane that struck the area causing major damage and deterring real estate buyers during the boom at that time.
Just last year, Opa Locka was in the news as the mail sorting facility near the Opa-Locka airport was investigated as one of the locations where bomb-filled packages were infiltrated to democratic party members.
In 2017, a group of town officials began efforts to abolish the city all-together as a means to rid Dade County of the burdensome municipality. Their argument was that the city’s population is small and ‘the place is transparently corrupt, money for basic public services has been squandered, and the police are forced to regularly arrest local politicians’.
Opa-Locka is also one of the top areas in the country for some of the most dangerous gangs, such as the MS-13 gang. However, an article from 2012 indicated, at that time, there were at least 250 gangs in Miami-Dade County with a minimum of 2000 members. Seven years later, with criminal illegal immigrants continuously entering the county, the problem has only worsened. And these gangs make cleaning up cities like Opa-Locka almost impossible. However, there are organizations and groups striving to build a better community.
