The Florida Highway Patrol in Troop G, provided security assistance at the Florida State Prison recently during the execution of Paul Hill who killed two people at an abortion clinic in the Florida Panhandle. The mass media attention, some threats of violence and large number of expected protesters prompted the extra security force. FHP provided their Command Center bus as well as security patrol assistance to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Department of Corrections and Bradford County Sheriff’s Office. Several media satellite trucks arrived, but the severe weather conditions in the area may have limited the number of protesters who actually showed up. The execution took place as the detail ended without incident.
