123rd Ready for Graduation
The members of the Florida Highway Patrol’s 123rd Recruit Class will graduate Feb. 7, putting 52 new troopers on the road and ready to serve. The recruits endured 30 weeks of intensive training in academic and high liability areas including human relations, law, firearms, defensive tactics, vehicle operations and first aid.
During their time at the academy, the recruits volunteered at events to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. They visited Pyramid, Inc., an organization that provides workforce and lifestyle programs for developmentally disabled adults and with whom the academy has developed a special relationship. The recruits also participated in two blood drives for the Southeastern Community Blood Center, all while learning how to be the kind of public servant Florida needs and deserves.
The members of the 123rd are proud of their accomplishment and ready to embark on their new career. The graduation ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. at the Tallahassee Automobile Museum.
Congratulations to the 123rd Recruit Class!
