In Memory of Sergeant Virginia “V.J.” Johnson

We sincerely regret the passing of Sergeant Virginia “V.J.” Johnson, a 26-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol. For the past eight years, Sgt. Johnson served at the FHP Academy where he worked closely with other academy staff to ensure a solid training environment. He spent countless hours at the academy working with recruits during physical training along with classroom instruction and serving as assistant statewide FTO Coordinator, maintaining field-training records for all recruit graduates, reviewing records to ensure that they were accurate, complete and timely. Sgt. Johnson continued to work hard despite his illness, helping to ensure that our agency’s training needs and requirements were met. Sgt. V.J. Johnson will be greatly missed by his FHP family.
