Highway Patrol Job Description

Highway patrol officers, also known as state troopers, are state police officers who work in all states except Hawaii. They are mainly responsible for enforcing traffic laws and apprehending criminals on a statewide basis.

Some highway patrol officers are actually the state police. For example the California highway patrol is a state police agency that have statewide authority to conduct law enforcement activities and criminal investigations.

They also enforce traffic laws on state highways and interstate expressways, overseeing the security of the state capitol complex, protect the governor, training new officers for local police forces too small to operate an academy, providing technological and scientific support services, and helping to coordinate multi-jurisdictional task force activity in serious or complicated cases.

However, some highway patrol organizations, such as the North Carolina State highway patrol are specifically charged with the enforcement of traffic laws, and while able to enforce other laws, they are not official "state police" agencies.
