The new members were excited as they were issued their FHP Auxiliary equipment. After completing a thorough application and background process, they were put through a rigorous training program. After approximately nine months of preparation, the long awaited reward was at hand. The new auxiliary troopers will be able to ride with FHP troopers while on-shift and assist them with their day-to-day operations.
