    My cousin was a MHP Trooper killed in the line of duty

    http://www.odmp.org/officer/5283-tro...even-k-gardner

    so I have ALL the respect for the fine men and women of the MHP

    However I will be completley honest when I say I have NO and I repeat NO desire to go to Trooper School, those guys are a step above anything that I have ever met and I will say they are the best and most professional organization I have ever came across in my corrections career. So much respect for those of you that could make it through trooper school, but I know its not for me haha.

    Man, that's gotta suck. Bad. To make it this far and go out with a back injury. ouch. Plus those kinds of injuries can really have an effect on you later, even if it gets taken care of properly. They just kinda linger.

    I feel sorry for him, I've had that injury. Took me 2 years to recover fully.

    Does anyone have a head-count on trooper school? I was curious if the drop out rate had leveled off.

    You are exactly right, got a guy with no activity and high mileage during high gas prices....not good. But if someone has higher mileage and alot of activity.....nothing said.

    So there was never a mileage limit per patrol car per month?

    Not one time have I ever been told that or heard of any other fellow Trooper being told that. Even when gas prices have been its highest.

    The only thing that I've heard that really bothered me is, a trooper from the G-Troop area told me that lately due to gas price increase they were instructed to remain at their house, dressed and ready to respond to service calls only and not to actively patrol.

    That just sounds like an excuse not to do anything. JMO.

    At least they are taking action on it. I worked for a state agency that makes MHP look like alter boys. The good ole boy system was all they used and there was zero accountability for supervisors. They could do what ever they wanted and never get disciplined. It was like working for the Mafia. As one of the other troops put it "What they do to their employees borderlines on criminal".

    All agencies have their flaws but MHP is a great agency and has very little turnover. The guys that endure and make it to the road love their jobs and their agency. That says a lot on its own.
