Yesterday the City of Aventura’s Police Department began a weeklong defensive tactics course at Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu. Nearly one hundred officers from the department will attend the course, which was designed to better equip them with the most efficient police survival techniques. Because of the invaluable efforts of Lieutenant Brian Pegues and Chief of Police Steve Steinberg, all Aventura Police Department officers will complete level one of the Valente Brothers Police Survival System. The Valente brothers have been training South Florida’s law enforcement community for over 15 years and is honored with the opportunity to serve the Aventura Police Department.
Aventura is a planned, suburban Miami city located in northeastern Miami-Dade County, Florida. The city name comes from the Spanish word for “adventure,” and was named “Aventura” after one of the developers of the original group of condominiums in the area remarked to the others, “What an adventure this is going to be.” The name predates the well-known mall (Aventura Mall) built near the condominium developments. According to the U.S. Census estimates of 2007, the city had a population of 29,475.
