Trooper Campbell Highway Sign Trooper Ronald Smith Bridge marker and plaque

Two of FHP’s fallen troopers were recognized recently during ceremonies on US 19 in the panhandle and on the Gulf Coast.

In Taylor County, Trooper Charles Eugene Campbell was recognized when the portion of US 19 in front of the former FHP station was named after him. He was shot after being kidnapped during a traffic stop in Perry. He was found in Georgia with another kidnapped victim. The suspect, an escaped fugitive, was later apprehended and while trying to gain control of an officer's weapon during the arrest, was shot and killed by an FBI agent.

In Citrus County, Trooper Ronald Gordon Smith was recognized by dedicating the bridge over the Florida Canal after him. Trooper Smith was shot while checking out two men in a parked car off US 19 in Inglis. They attempted to flee but two deer hunters, who had witnessed the shooting, wounded one of them and then captured both.
