Trooper Olaciregui
Trooper Michael Olaciregui

Congratulations to Trooper Michael Olaciregui who has been selected as the recipient of the Florida Highway Patrol "Trooper of the Month" award for March 2002, based on his quick actions in preventing a possible suicide and injury to motorists.

On March 8, 2002, Trooper Olaciregui was advised of a woman screaming for help on the State Road 93 overpass to Indian Trace. Olaciregui immediately responded and observed a male who had straddled the wall, apparently attempting to jump to the roadway below, with a woman holding on to him screaming for help. He quickly ran up the embankment and grabbed the subject, pulling him from the wall and restraining him. The suspect was later transported to Memorial Hospital under the Baker Act.

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