Our Regional Duty Officers are the vital link between the public and law enforcement. The work is challenging and crucial to maintaining public safety on Florida's streets and highways.

Regional Duty Officers receive calls from the public and dispatch troopers to crashes and other calls for service. They monitor trooper safety and provide any assistance a trooper may need.

Regional Duty Officers receive special training to become certified to access information stored in local, state, and federal criminal justice databases.

Regional Duty Officers work with troopers as well as other local, county, state, national, and international law enforcement agencies.
