Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Bill Rippy, right, conducts a training class for Florida Department of Transportation officers Friday at the FHP station in Fort Myers. As part of a statewide merger that took place July 1, Florida DOT officers are now FHP troopers. The 40-hour training class highlighted policies that were different between the two agencies and allowed DOT officers to have questions answered face to face. Lexey Swall/Staff
