Last month, troopers from West Palm Beach joined the Archer Disability Foundation during Palm Beach County’s Disability Mentoring and Employment month kick-off. Students from Palm Beach High School and Santaluces High School attended exhibitions conducted by several specially trained troopers during their recent safety awareness event. Troopers spoke with the disabled teens about the importance of wearing a seat belt, practicing safe driving, and being aware when walking in or around traffic.

The teens enjoyed watching Troop K’s Tactical Response Team (TRT) demonstrate several simulated high risk rescue situations and FHP’s K-9 vehicle search techniques. Another trooper told students about our agency’s mobile data computers that troopers use during traffic stops. FHP members know that getting the safety message out to teens can help foster positive relationships with law enforcement and make our roadways a little safer for everyone.
