Motorcycle trooper wants to kick-start other girls’ dreams

She gets called “motorman.” Sometimes, she’s “motor lady.” If there’s an official title for her, it hasn’t stuck quite yet with the public.

Chantale Jones, a 15-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol, is the first and only woman serving as a motorcycle trooper for the statewide agency.

Jones, 38, a married mother of three based in Davie, joined the motorcycle unit about three years ago, enforcing the law on her Harley-Davidson ever since. It’s a source of pride for the agency’s motor unit, which consists of her and 49 other troopers.

The Florida Highway Patrol has a rich history with motorcycles.
