Troop I Headquarters is currently located in Tallahassee, commanded by Major Jeffrey Dixon. Troop I oversees commercial vehicle enforcement operations for Florida’s northern region encompassing Troops A, B, C, and H.

Troop I is separated into three districts: Panama City, Lake City, and Ocala. Panama City, which oversees Florida’s Panhandle is commanded by Captain Steve Park. Lake City, which covers the “Big Bend”, is commanded by Captain Daniel “Charlie” Caulk. Ocala, which covers the I-75 corridor, is commanded by Captain Ezra Folsom.

Troop I is comprised of 133 sworn and 12 non-sworn members. Troop I strategic goals support the Florida Highway Patrol’s broad highway safety mission and troopers strive to save lives by reducing the number and severity of commercial motor vehicle involved traffic crashes and removing high risk motor carriers and drivers from Florida roadways. Troopers enforce provisions of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations related to the operation of commercial motor vehicles and Florida laws focused on commercial vehicle load, size, weight, fuel tax, hazardous material safety, traffic regulations, driver licensing, and vehicle registrations.
