Troop F Headquarters is currently located in Fort Myers, commanded by Major Thomas Pikul. Troop F consists of ten Southwest Florida counties including Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, Lee, Desoto, Hardee, Highlands, Manatee, and Sarasota.

Troop F is separated into two districts: North and South Operations. The North District covers Desoto, Hardee, Highlands, Manatee, and Sarasota counties and commanded by Captain Jeffrey Van Arsdale. The South District covers Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades, and Lee counties and is commanded by Captain Michael Gideons.

Troop F is staffed by 155 sworn positions along with 16 non-sworn positions and has a long and proud tradition of excellence, due in large part to the positive and motivated employees that promote FHP’s motto of Courtesy, Service, and Protection. Excellent cooperation with local, state, and federal law enforcement and governmental entities help the troop to be very successful in our mission of promoting a safe and secure Florida through professional law enforcement and traffic safety awareness.
