In Memory of Chris Connell

The Florida SWAT Association is deeply saddened by the loss of Florida Capitol Police Director Chris Connell.  Chris served honorably for the Tallahassee police Department for 28 years, retiring as a Major, before joining the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in 2014.  He was very active with the Florida SWAT Association and served on the Board of Directors for several years.

The Florida law enforcement community has suffered a tremendous loss with his passing and we offer our deepest condolences to Chris’ family, friends and co-workers.  The Florida SWAT Association is extremely appreciative of the many years of Chris’ efforts and support in our community.
