History of the Highway Patrol
The Long Road to Where We Are Today
President Dwight D. Eisenhower launched the construction of the interstate system as we know it today by introducing a bill called the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956. The idea behind the project was to create an intricate system of roadways that would eliminate traffic jams, and provide a safer means of transportation for American citizens by replacing unsafe and inconsistent road conditions.
Other benefits listed alongside the project included things like using highways as quick means of evacuation from disasters and imminent atomic attack, as well as aiding in the efficient means of transportation of military supplies, troops, and goods around the country.
While there may still be traffic jams and there are some sections of the United States Interstates that are far from perfect, the project has been an incredible success.
The responsibility of watching over every mile of roadway falls upon the highway patrol. Highway patrol units are usually apart of either a state police force or a state Department of Public Safety. There are a few exceptions here and there but, in general, a state government is responsible for looking after the highway systems within their state and they use highway patrol units to do so.
Highway patrol officer responsibilities include enforcing traffic laws on the interstate, assisting local branches of law enforcement, protecting government officials, and apprehending criminals on a statewide basis. Highway patrol officers are often on the scene after car accidents and assist with first responder duties like ensuring the safe transport accident victims, as well as mitigating traffic to ensure the safety of drivers and those men and women working the scene.
Custom highway patrol challenge coins are an excellent means of showing gratitude for an officer’s dedication for public safety. They stand for the common goals of all state troopers and are meant to be carried as a reminder of their oath the protect and serve, as well as inspire a sense of accomplishment in their efforts.
