Providing safe and secure facilities for our residents and employees continues to be a top priority.

This will allow for a secure and convenient access point to our Police Department through the main entrance 24/7.

Check-in Process

All visitors to the Sunny Isles Beach Government Center are required to check-in at the front desk. Visitors should arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to complete the check-in process.

  • When arriving at the Government Center, visitors should park in the ground floor parking lot. The parking garage is for employees only.
  • Visitors must enter the Government Center through the main front entrance (not the parking garage). All visitors are required to check-in with City staff on the 1st floor main lobby of the Government Center. Visitors must have their driver’s license (or some form of photo identification) with them. 
  • Visitors will be required to take a photo for the visitor badge (this photo can be saved in our system, for future visits, for your convenience). 
  • Once all steps are completed, visitors will be issued a visitor badge, which must be worn at all times while in the facility. 

Helpful Tip: Download the mobile app “Sine Pro” ahead of time to expedite your check-in process via your mobile device. You can begin the process as soon as you are in the parking lot of the Government Center. Upon entry, (you will only need to show confirmation of your check in and) your visitor badge will be issued. 

The Sunny Isles Beach Government Center, situated in a pedestrian-friendly area at the heart of the City, opened in January 2005.

Within the 54,000-square foot edifice is the Commission Chamber surrounded by a civic plaza, combining landscape, water, and contrasting building materials. The inner-operations of the City are conducted in this building, and meetings are generally held the third Thursday of each month.

Housed inside this vision you will find a satellite branch of the United States Post Office open Monday-Friday, brought through a partnership with the Federal Government, and the MDC Sunny Isles Beach branch library open Monday-Saturday, which offers an assortment of classes and programs in the City’s first floor meeting room.

The first floor is completed with a Visitor Center, supported by the Sunny Isles Beach Tourism and Marketing Council. The Visitor Center offers tourists and residents alike a wealth of resources for finding activities and events around South Florida. Sunny Isles Beach branded merchandise along with tickets to SIB Cultural Events are available for purchase in the Center as well.

Housed on the second floor of the Government Center is the SIB Police Department, open 24/7. Elevators from the lobby transport customers to the second floor during regular business hours, though after hours, the police department can only be accessed via the 2nd level of the parking garage. Accident and crime reports may be requested at the records department.

For those residents, visitors and contractors looking to visit and address issues of code compliance and parking, apply for building permits, or obtain business licenses, the third floor of the Government Center is your destination.

The fourth floor holds the City Commission; offices of the City Attorney, Clerk and Manager; human resources department; and finance department. Constituents may make appointments to meet with their elected officials or request public records from the City Clerk.
