Sunrise Police Sergeant Darwin Arroyo Fund

Sunrise Police Sergeant Darwin Arroyo and the Arroyo family are in need of your assistance. On August 3, 2021, Sergeant Arroyo was victim to a COVID exposure at work. He is now in critical condition and has been placed on a ventilator. We are patiently waiting for a lung transplant. When a lung becomes available, he will be transported 100s of miles from his home and family to undergo the procedure. Your donation will help with travel and lodging for the Arroyo family during this critical time.

Darwin is a proud father of two girls, Jasmine and Deserae, and a loving husband to his beautiful wife, Shamile. His favorite past-times are to sing, play basketball, and recently took up a new hobby of photography. He is the Financial Coordinator for Dave Ramsey Peace University and a faithful member of Church by the Glades. Darwin also served in the United States Marine Corps, where he was stationed in Camp David and provided security for former United States President George W. Bush. After his tour in Camp David, Sergeant Arroyo was deployed to Ramadi, Iraq with 3rd Battalion 7th Marine Regiment.

In July 2007, Darwin was hired as a Police Officer at the City of Sunrise Police Department. Sergeant Arroyo has served as a Road Patrol Officer, SWAT Member (Sniper Team Leader), Detective, Fire Investigator, Gang Task Force Officer, and Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Officer.

To know Darwin is to love him, if he did not make you smile at the first hello, he would find a way to break the barrier with something funny or sarcastic. If that failed he would start singing until you could not help but smile or maybe even laugh. Sometimes it was hard to take him serious but when he sat down with you and placed his hand on your shoulder, it was time to listen as he was about to share his opinion and give some sound advice to consider.

Today, his family, his friends, his co-workers, and his community miss him dearly and pray daily for his recovery. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
