Officer Michelle Lawless was killed in an ATV accident in the Holeyland / Rotenberger Wildlife Management Area while on patrol for poachers between 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm. Her ATV struck a metal gate and overturned, trapping her underneath.

After she failed to respond to a routine radio check for her location, another officer went to locate her and found her pinned beneath the vehicle. She was flown to a hospital in Delray where she succumbed to her injuries.

Officer Lawless had served with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for five years and was assigned to Broward County.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s core foundations are based on values and family. These beliefs rang through the streets of downtown Tallahassee as Class 35 participated in a memorial workout in honor of Officer Michelle A. Lawless, our own fallen family member. The loss of a family member, especially a fellow sworn law enforcement officer, is tragic and never forgotten. It is a constant reminder of the dangers involved with protecting the public and environment. As a class, we were proud to start and finish the workout, together, in honor of this brave officer and family member. May your name never be forgotten and your legacy never fade, thank you for your service.
