Description Of Job

State police officers are the ones who are responsible for enforcing motor vehicle laws. For this reason, they are often called highway patrol officers. State officers can also arrest criminals anywhere in the state. Sometimes they are asked to help the local officers in the jurisdiction where they are working. Like uniformed officers, they know how to give basic first aid, since they are often the first officers on the scene of a crime or car accident.
