Captain Diane Russo, a 22-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol, has been officially promoted to the permanent rank of Captain, effective July 8, 2005. Pursuant to Florida Statutes, Captain Russo received an honorary promotion from Lieutenant to Captain when she was assigned to head the Executive Protection Detail for Florida Lt. Governor Toni Jennings 3 years ago. Her high placement on the Patrol’s promotional list this year resulted in the permanent promotion to Captain.
