Future Trooper?

Florida DOT District Seven Secretary Ken Hartmann sitting in a MarauderAfter 30 years of dedicated service to the State of Florida, FDOT District Seven Secretary Ken Hartmann finally got to do something that he had wanted to do for a long time; take a ride aboard one of the FHP Marauders on patrol in Tampa Bay!

The men and women of the Florida Highway Patrol wish to extend their thanks to Ken for his many years of friendship and support. Our median turn-arounds are more frequent, our entrance and exit ramps are safer, and our highways are a little smoother thanks to Ken.

Will there be a Trooper Hartmann in the future? We’ll have to wait and see how retirement life treats him – Good luck Ken, we wish you the best!
