Happy Anniversary Georgia State Patrol

Happy anniversary to Georgia's finest. Created 70 years ago today, the Georgia State Patrol investigates traffic crashes and enforces driver license laws.

Georgia State Patrol Corporal, Ken White, said the job means so much to him and other troopers.  "It's an honor. I don't know one trooper that has come on and hasn't felt a sense of pride with wearing this uniform," said White.

In the Summer of 1937, the first trooper school graduated 80 troopers. Today there's over 764 troopers.
