This year with the help of the Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary Unit in Davie, Captain John Roberts, Broward County District Commander, was pleased to announce that there were no fatalities worked by the Florida Highway Patrol. As in the past, Colonel Chris Knight suspended office operations for all sworn personnel during the four-day holiday weekend. As a result, there were more visible FHP units on the roadways.
In Broward County, with the assistance of the Auxiliary Troopers, there was a noticeable increase in the presence of FHP units on the roadways. Captain John Roberts, along with the men and women of the Davie Office of the Florida Highway Patrol would like to thank the diverse group of Auxiliary Troopers for their efforts in helping to make the roadways safer for the citizens of Broward County.
