Part of a Fort Lauderdale street was dedicated Tuesday March 24, 2009 to fallen Fort Lauderdale police officer Bryant Peney. The street dedication ceremony took place place at 900 S.E. 15 Street, located at the intersection of S.E. 15 Street and S. Miami Road in front of Harbordale Elementary School.

Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler attended the street dedication ceremony, which concluded with the unveiling of a new Bryant Peney Street sign at the northwest corner of S.E. 15 Street and S. Miami Road.

Officer Bryant Peney was shot in January 1996 while pursuing suspect Jeffrey Weaver on foot across South Federal Highway. Peney died the next day. Officer Peney was 27 years old and a six-year veteran of the Department who was known for his dedication to the community and love of law enforcement.

Weaver, who was convicted of first-degree murder, was sentenced to death.

The City of Fort Lauderdale previously renamed Lauderdale Park at Bryant H. Peney Park and a memorial monument was dedicated at the park on June 24, 1997.

On June 20, 2001, the Bryant Peney Act was signed into law by then Florida Governor Jeb Bush. The law allows prosecution for murder in the first degree (Felony Murder) when a perpetrator unlawfully kills a law enforcement officer or another individual when they are committing, attempting to commit or escaping from the immediate scene of a felony while resisting an officer with violence.
