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.
