March Meeting – Commercial Vehicle Enforcement – Lt. Robert Morris, FHP
Posted - Mar 12, 2018

Mr. Lieutenant Robert Morris will be providing us with a summary of the FDOT enforcement program by the Florida Highway Patrol.  This will include an overview of the departments functions and structure, enforcement directives, and including a Q and A.  If you deal with any kind of commercial vehicle you will not want to miss this opportunity to hear from a true expert to enhance your own fleet program.

Mr. Morris began my law enforcement career as a Deputy Sheriff in North Florida in 1997.  In 2005, he was hired by the Florida Dept. of Transportation (FDOT) as a DOT Officer assigned to the Ocala Field Office.  He was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in Jacksonville in 2010.  On July 1, 2011, the Florida Legislature merged the law enforcement portion of FDOT into the Florida Highway Patrol  and created FHP’s Office of Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE).  In 2014, he transferred to the Ft Myers District and in 2017, promoted to District Lieutenant here in Ft Myers.  Mr. Morris has a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from the University of South Florida (USF).

Networking will begin at 11:30, to be followed by lunch, and we will get in to the session presentation, followed by Q & A.
