Former Trooper Now Serving in Iraq

Patrick Turner Former Trooper Patrick S. Turner is now serving in Iraq as a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. His current assignment is Baghdad, Iraq, where he is supervising a group of federal and military investigators. His job is very similar to what he does in the United States. He builds cases and turns them over to Iraqi investigators to present into their system of justice. Ultimately he helps put bad guys in jail.

Special Agent Turner joined the Florida Highway Patrol in March of 1988, and was a member of the 81st Recruit Class. Upon graduation he was stationed in Naples where he remained during his time with the Patrol. He left the Patrol and joined the United States Army where he became a pilot and flew Chinook helicopters. He was unable to get law enforcement out of his blood so he joined the FBI.

Special Agent Turner has many memories and a great affection for the Florida Highway Patrol where he began his career. He is also the nephew of retired FHP Sgt. Mike Fulton. He still calls Jacksonville home and hopes to return to the area one day.

Let’s remember Pat and all of those serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
