We report with great sorrow the loss of Retired Corporal Nick Rivera, who was currently serving as an active reserve member for the Florida Highway Patrol in Troop A. Corporal Rivera was known and loved by many. He was our dear friend and served honorably and will be truly missed. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers during this time of mourning.

The Florida Highway Patrol and Auxiliary stepped up to provide assistance to residents in the Panhandle of Florida. Over 600 full time troopers were 'assigned' to the area to provide assistance wherever and whenever needed. They are assisting in all aspects during relief efforts. Thanks Troopers for taking time away from  your families at this time of need.

Friday, February 12th was a very sad day for citizens and State Troopers as we say goodbye to a great man who many people that knew him said he was always smiling. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Timothy Burtcher will be laid to rest today, surrounded by family, friends, coworkers, and acquaintances, paying their respects to a great man whom we lost in an unexpected tragedy. Rest in peace Tim and keep on smiling.

On Tuesday, 12/8/2015 Major John Prescott accepted the "Champion of Service Award" at the State Capitol in Tallahassee from Governor Rick Scott for "Strengthening our state with significant and meaningful service." The award was accepted on behalf of the 220+ Auxiliary Sworn State Troopers in Florida. Also in attendance was the Florida State Cabinet (Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, CFO Jeff Atwater and Commissioner Adam Putnam. Colonel Gene Spalding [State commander FHP] commented on the outstanding job the Auxiliary does to support the FHP mission and how pleased he is that the FHPA is being recognized for their service. Also in attendance was Major Michael Fraher and Lt. Barrie Glover. This award is a well deserved recognition for the hundreds of Auxiliary Troopers that put their lives on the line to support the mission of the FHP and to make Florida a better and safer place to live and visit. All members of the FHP and FHPA should take pride in this recognition by the Governor and the Florida Cabinet. It was a great day for the Auxiliary Troopers. This recognition is shared by ALL Auxiliary members past and present..

Major John Prescott Recognized as One of

ABC's-7 "Seven Who Care"

ABC-TV 7 in Sarasota has an annual program titled “Seven Who Care”. The station selects 7 community members that have been nominated for their community service to receive this honor. My wife, Judy, submitted me for consideration for this recognition as a result of my volunteering to the Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary. I am pleased to advise you that I was, in fact,  selected as one of the 2015 Seven Who Care recipients.  

The award ceremony was held Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 11:30 AM at a luncheon at Michael’s on East restaurant in Sarasota.

TV-7 interviewed Trooper Ken Watson and I, in uniform. Then I took the reporter and camera-man for a short ‘ride-a-long’ to capture what ‘the Auxiliary job’ is like. They put together short video introductions for each of the selected Seven Awardees.

This honor was a great opportunity to give FHP and FHPA some positive exposure. I hope you enjoy. I also want to thank the Troopers that supported this process. Chief Spence Price, Capt. John Donovan, Capt. Conner Cardwell, Lt. Randy Head, Lt. Joseph Bowers, Master Trooper Ken Watson, Master Trooper Barbara Ehrhart, and Trooper Roldan Rodriguez.
