Staying on Top of Agriculture Crimes

Cpl. Doug Fowler of the Agriculture Unit was recently elected vice president of the Florida Agriculture Crimes Intelligence Unit.

The statewide group holds regular intelligence meetings and focuses mostly on agriculture-related crimes. Sharing criminal activity throughout the state helps law enforcement officers recognize trends.

The group also provides immediate manpower to assist other agencies, if necessary.

CCSO has been working with the FACIU for 13 years and Fowler has been a member for three years.

“I was honored to know that the members of the FACIU have the confidence in me to elect me into a position of such responsibility,” said Fowler.
