He's the top trooper

Clip_image002 The Florida Highway Patrol today named Edward P. Pope its Trooper of the Year for 2007.

It's been a good year for Pope, a four-year FHP veteran, who was named Trooper of the Month an unprecedented three times in a row.

Pope's bosses said he exhibited bravery and exceptional police work this year by saving someone's life after an attempted suicide and rescuing two people from a submerged vehicle, among other acts. They praised his "hard work, relentless efforts, excellent investigative skills and his performance above and beyond the call of duty."

Pope, who was recognized by Gov. Charlie Crist this week at the Capitol, works in Charlotte County.
