The history of the NYSP originated with only 232 men on horseback that began patrolling New York State’s rural areas. Then, after a construction foreman was murdered in a robbery, his employer started a movement to form a State police department to provide protection to all of the state’s rural areas. As a result, the State Legislature passed legislation in April 1917 that established the NYSP as a full-service agency.

Now, the NYSP employs over 5,000 sworn state troopers and over 700 civilian members. Their mission and values include to “ensure the safety of the state’s roadways, prevent and investigate crime, prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters and provide support to other law enforcement agencies”.
