Trooper Matthew Mihm
Troop E - Miami
Congratulations to Trooper Matthew Mihm for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for April 2010, for his actions during an incident in Troop E.
On April 28, 2010, Trooper Mihm was instrumental in the apprehension of a robbery suspect. Trooper Mihm was on patrol on northbound SR-826 when a motorist advised him that he had just been robbed of his cellular phone, Florida driver's license and $130,000. The motorist gave Trooper Mihm a description of the vehicle and advised that the plate was covered so it couldn’t be seen. Trooper Mihm took immediate action locating the suspect's vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. The suspect was identified as a police detective. Trooper Mihm notified his chain of command and after an intense investigation, the detective was arrested. As a result of Trooper Mihm’s actions in locating the suspect, detaining those involved and the immediate notification of his chain of command, a robbery suspect was apprehended.
Trooper Mihm is to be commended for his actions and his commitment to the safety of the people of Florida. Congratulations for being selected Trooper of the Month for April 2010.
