Members of the auxiliary are volunteers, and the Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary is a separate, nonprofit entity of the Florida Highway Patrol. Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary is authorized by the Florida Legislature. As a Florida Highway Patrol Auxiliary State Trooper you will be part of a truly professional Law Enforcement Agency that consistently strives to maintain the highest caliber of personnel dedicated to providing service to the public. Auxiliary troopers’ responsibilities constantly increase as a member completes advanced training. Presently, we are fully equipped in the same manner as our brother State Troopers. Initially, you will ride with a trooper to provide “second officer” backup. After additional experience and training, you may be approved for “Limited Scope Patrol” (L.S.P.). L.S.P. certified officers patrol solo in a marked patrol unit to provide assistance to motorists and troopers.
