America's best-looking cruiser contest 2023

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.– On Monday, The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) entered the Annual American Association of State Troopers (AAST) ‘Best Looking Cruiser’ contest.

Each year competing states submit pictures of their selected cruiser and choose a background or location they feel represents their state.

The winning cruiser will serve as the cover vehicle for the 2024 AAST wall calendar, whose proceeds benefit the AAST Foundation, which provides educational scholarships to dependents of member troopers.

FHP currently sits in third place behind Kentucky State Police(1st) and Georgia State Patrol (2), Indiana State Police holds fourth place. With over a week left until voting closes on July 31, the competition is heating up!

Florida Highway Patrol, along with Kentucky State Police, Georgia State Patrol, Virginia State Police, Indiana State Patrol, and Massachusetts State Police, have all participated in some friendly competition by tagging each other in social media posts, creating posts aimed at each other, and even producing ads (FHP) playfully targeting their competitors and encouraging followers to vote.
