Chief Grady Carrick, Major Eddie Johnson,
Ms. Laura Gibson, and Lieutenant Jerry Maddux
In May, Ms. Laura Gibson was recognized for her efforts as the sole member of the clerical staff at the Marianna FHP Station. She single-handedly manages to answer phones, provide stellar service to walk in customers, file, sell reports, handle administrative queries/tasks, etc., on a daily basis. She has, on numerous occasions, even cancelled or amended her scheduled vacation time to facilitate a department need. She manages to maintain a positive attitude and assertively assists all personnel in their needs.
Recently, a death occurred in another office within the troop and Ms. Gibson volunteered to help maintain normalcy of operations by assisting their personnel in the processing of crash report requests.
She is an invaluable asset to the Florida Highway Patrol and the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
