The Annual MVCI Association it proud to host the Western Regional DHE Conference, in conjunction with the MVCI conference to bring together the top interdictors, analysts, supervisors, and managers in law enforcement.
The Annual MVCI Association once again welcomes it's long time partnership with FMCSA and the DIAP program. This conference was originally formed to allow DIAP and EPIC a forum to re-certify it's instructors, bring together the top interdicitions from around the United States and Canada, and to host the National Awards Ceremony.
The Patrol was established in 1939 when then Governor Fred P. Cone, sitting as a member of the Executive Board of the Department of Public Safety, made a motion to establish the Florida Highway Patrol. Under the direction of Director Reid and (then) Captain Kirkman, the first training academy was held in Bradenton with 40 students. This class graduated 32 members and by the end of 1940 (the first full year of operation), the Patrol had 59 patrolmen. In that first year, they patrolled 1,938,564 miles of roadway and investigated 1,000 crashes. In 2013, we patrolled 31,654,272 miles and investigated 213,024 crashes. Florida had less than two million residents in 1939, while today we have over 19 million with more than 90 million visitors to our state each year.
