At its January 20, 2015 City of South Miami Commission Meeting, recognized the financial contributions of Team FootWorks to the South Miami Police Explorers Post 256 and the many contributions Hans Huseby made to this community.

Their first time before the Commission since Hans’ death, Laurie and J.P. Huseby expressed their deepest and sincerest appreciation to the City of South Miami administration and leadership for authorizing the closing of Sunset Drive in front of FootWorks to have a public memorial. 

Prior to his untimely passing, Police Chief René had planned to present Hans with a plaque recognizing his support to the Explorers.  At the meeting, the Chief presented the plaque to Laurie and J.P. Huseby.  And with his passing, a new plaque memorializing Huseby, is to be hung in the Police Headquarters, will recognize the Police Explorer of the Year, a new award to be presented annually in John “Hans” Huseby’s name.

At the conclusion of the presentations, Laurie and J.P. presented Chief Landa with a $7,200 check for the Police Explorers, representing memorial donations made in John “Hans” Huseby’s name.

Pictured are three of Hans’ favorite events here in South Miami: Safe Streets Halloween, the Twilight Run and the Parade of the Elves.
