Congratulations to the current and former members of the Wisconsin State Patrol - both sworn and non-sworn - on the 75th anniversary of your accomplished agency and its history of excellence.

Since 1939, the men and women of the State Patrol have served with distinction while making our state’s roadways and communities safer for everyone through effective enforcement and education.

I am reminded every day of the selfless service of all members of the State Patrol and appreciate your professional expertise and dedication. I am proud that the State Patrol has been and will continue to be a vital component of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

With a stellar tradition of 75 years of service, the State Patrol is a leader in traffic and public safety throughout our state. Congratulations, once again, on a job well done.

We all can be justifiably proud of our service and our contributions to the State Patrol’s lasting legacy of saving lives and reducing injuries since 1939.
