Sergeant Delahoz
Sergeant Jorge Delahoz

Congratulations to Sgt. Jorge Delahoz for being selected as the recipient of the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month award for February 2002, based on his rescue of a victim of domestic violence and kidnapping and the apprehension of the suspect.

On February 16, 2002, Sgt. Delahoz went above the call of duty and apprehended a suspect who had abducted his estranged wife and was threatening to kill her. As Delahoz was traveling north on I-95 at the 224-mile marker, he spotted the suspect’s white Range Rover, and followed it to the rest area. After ordering the driver out of the vehicle at gunpoint, Sgt. Delahoz rescued the female passenger who had been badly beaten. The suspect was arrested for kidnapping and domestic violence, among other charges. Sergeant Delahoz’s persistence and quick actions helped save the lives of two people.

Sgt. Delahoz acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol and is hereby commended for his actions. He is greatly appreciated!
