What are the
duties of a Trooper?
Pennsylvania State Police Troopers
provide and maintain traffic enforcement and control, crime scene response and investigation,
public order, staff support, and security for the citizens of the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania. Troopers often work independently and are required to recognize immediate
problem areas. Troopers must make responsible decisions and take the appropriate corrective
action without the benefit of close supervision. Troopers often operate in situations that are
stressful and dangerous.
