About the Author:

RON GRIMMING

Ron Grimming has an extensive, and impressive, 33-year background in law enforcement. His career in law enforcement began in 1970 as a Special Agent with the Illinois State Police. He served in various investigative assignments including: special task forces targeting criminal activities associated with subversive groups, political and police corruption, illegal drugs, and financial crimes. He was promoted numerous times during his career, and attained the rank of Deputy Director of the Illinois State Police, supervising more than 2,500 officers assigned to the investigative and patrol divisions of the department.

 

In 1993 Grimming was appointed Director of the Florida Highway Patrol, where he managed the activities of 1,740 sworn officers and 528 civilian personnel. Grimming focused the patrol’s mission on highway safety through traffic enforcement, accident investigation, prevention of highway violence, interdiction of illegal contraband, investigation of auto-theft, and the development of public safety education programs. Through Grimming’s leadership, the Florida Highway Patrol received the recognition of being nationally accredited, after having its policies and operational procedures scrutinized by a panel of nationally recognized law enforcement experts. Also under Grimming’s guidance, the patrol won the prestigious National Chief’s Challenge, designating it as having the best traffic safety program in the nation.

 

During his law enforcement career, Grimming has served as General Chairman of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), State and Provincial Police Division, which represents the nation’s state police and highway patrol organizations on the IACP Board of Directors. Grimming also served as Chairman of the IACP Organized Crime Committee, and President of the State Law Enforcement Chief’s Association. Grimming has an extensive law enforcement training background having served on Florida’s Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission. He currently serves as Director of Miami-Dade College’s School of Justice, which has responsibility for college criminal justice degree programs, as well as law enforcement, corrections, and security officer training for Miami-Dade County criminal justice agencies.
