Barbara Ehrhart , the longest serving female FHP Trooper stepped down Tuesday after 36 years of service. Ehrhart spent her entire career with F-Troop in Manatee County. She said it’s bittersweet because she loves the job and the community but it’s time for something else.
Erhart met her husband throught FHP and had a chance to be promoted many times but turned it down to remain a state trooper.
Erhart hopes to inspire more women to take up law enforcent and wants them to know they can do whatever they put their mind to. Thank you for your inspiration and service Barbara Ehrhart, Mantee County will miss you.
