Troop F CRTs Honored

Sergeant Campbell, Sergeant Taylor, Trooper Papp, Trooper Rongish, and Trooper Ferrell.FHP’s Alpha and Bravo Community Response Teams (CRTs) were acknowledged at the annual Davis Productivity Awards ceremony held at the Doubletree Hotel in Tampa. The CRTs consisted of a total of two sergeants and 12 troopers in Lee and Collier Counties, with each team in operation for a period of three months.

These special teams employed unmarked vehicles and aircraft in a coast to coast effort to improve safety on Florida’s roadways. Combined, the two teams issued over 11,000 citations. Through their efforts, the numbers of crashes and calls reporting careless drivers were reduced—an incredible achievement! The teams certainly deserve praise from our department for their hard work and dedication in serving the citizens and visitors to the Southwest Florida area.

Thank you to the following members of the CRTs:

Sergeant Clarence Campbell, Sergeant Daniel Taylor, Trooper Lucy Papp, Trooper Jeffrey Rongish, Trooper Booker Ferrell, Trooper Jeffrey Benoit, Trooper Michael Merritt, Trooper Robert Ellis, Trooper Michael Grider, Trooper Melanie Thompson, Trooper William Harris, Trooper Roldan Rodriguez and Trooper Yoenis Garica.
