Charles T. Randall

Officers Charles Randall and Roy Burnsed were killed in an automobile accident when their SUV patrol vehicles crashed head-on, on the L-5 levee near the Holey Land Wildlife Management Area in Palm Beach County.

The officers were driving in opposite directions at approximately 2130 hours on the 17-feet wide dirt road which crossed the levee in a remote area with little light. Both officers were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. Officer Randall succumbed to his injuries two days after the accident.

In January 2004, an offshore patrol boat, the C.T. Randall, was named in Officer Randall's honor. He had served with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for almost 3 years. He is survived by his parents.

Here at The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, we are a family. While loss can be very painful for any family, our family is strong. Today, we in Class 39 completed a memorial workout in honor of Officer Charles T. Randall, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty on October 28, 2001. We proudly completed the workout within the time constraints as a testament to Officer Randall’s own strength and achievements. We will continue to honor this officer and all other members of our family who have fallen. Though he may be gone, we will remember him and his final sacrifice.
