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.
Although COVID-19 mitigation efforts prevented us from gathering in person, we collectively paused on Saturday, May 2,
2020 to recognize the 115th anniversary of the Department and to honor the 98 Pennsylvania State Police members who have lost their lives in service to the Commonwealth.
The granite Wall of Honor has been filled to
capacity. Preparations are currently being made to add an additional wall. Due to the
rising costs of granite and associated materials, the price to purchase a brick will be $350.
Bricks may be purchased by contacting the museum at 717.534.0565
