A stationary patrol car, waiting along the side of the Florida Turnpike or the I-4 Corridor in Central Florida, tends to prompt a quick look at the speedometer and a check of our speed. But apart from their presence as monitors of the road, the Florida Highway Patrol is made up of public servants, men and women who have made it their mission to serve with “courtesy, service, and protection.” And since these public servants are so rarely recognized beyond the roads we drive, here is a breakdown of those charged with protecting the leading counties across the I-4 corridor
The Florida Highway Patrol in Central Florida is known as Troop D, with Major Waxler Bright as the troop commander, followed in rank by Captain Christopher Sorvillo, commanding Orlando Distric 1, Captain Elias Sanchez, commanding Orlando District 2, and Captain Roger Carpenter, commanding Deland and Cocoa regions to the coast.
The goal of Patrol Operations is to provide for the overall safety on Florida’s highways by reducing the number of traffic crashes resulting in death, injury and property damage, and to identify and apprehend individuals involved in criminal activities on Florida’s highways.
