The Florida Highway Patrol assisted the Georgia State Patrol during the G-8 Summit in Sea Island, Georgia, June 8-10, 2004. Leaders of the world's major industrial democracies were brought together at this summit.

World leaders of Algeria, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, and Uganda met with current G-8 members, which includes the United States, French Republic, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Canada. The FHP was on hand to assist the Georgia State Patrol to preserve peace, enforce the laws fairly and impartially, protect the Constitutional rights of all persons involved, and prevent property damage and injury. Activists and protestors were expected to be present to voice their positions and try to disrupt the normal operations during the event, however, the number that showed was far less than anticipated. Over 100 Florida Highway Patrol members were deputized as Georgia State Troopers to help with the event.
