All across America, men and women from many walks of life took time out of their busy schedules to share their professions with our nation's youth during the 2005 Great American Teach-In. Forty Troopers from every corner of Troop C were on hand to help with the event, fulfilling the Florida Highway Patrol's mission of Courtesy, Service, and Protection for hundreds of school age children and staff.

Campaign hats, patrol cars, and FHP coloring books and pencils were a big hit with the children and teens at the annual event. The highlight of the day was when our troopers shared their personal experiences with the children, letting them know what it is like to be a law enforcement officer in Florida. The troopers also took this opportunity to speak with the children about traffic safety, the importance of wearing seat belts and watching out for traffic while riding their bikes or crossing the street. Troopers also reminded the children to be kind to one another and to respect rules and laws. Troopers talked to the teens about the importance of safe driving behavior, obeying traffic laws, and not drinking and driving. From the smallest kindergartner to the seniors in area high schools, there was a message for everyone
