Recently, Troops K and L participated in demonstrations for Florida Turnpike Operations employees and their children. This consisted of the Patrol's TRT (Tactical Response Team), the Rollover Simulator, and Canine demonstrations. There were also patrol vehicles on display, including the LAV 150 (Light Armored Vehicle) and the Chevrolet Camaro.

Troop L's TRT conducted Tactical Demonstrations. One showed a member rappelling from the Turnpike Operations Building, while another showed Lieutenant Richard Vore leading his team on a simulated rescue mission with the LAV 150 standing by for a quick getaway. The demonstrations were educational and fun, which resulted in a successful event.
