State Police

Highway Patrol - Generic term used to identify police officers who patrol the state highways of America. One of the first programs to feature the State Police was HIGHWAY PATROL/SYN/1955-59 with Broderick Crawford as Chief ("Ten-Four!") Dan Mathews.

The program began with a narrator saying:

"Whenever the laws of any state are broken, a duly authorized organization swings into action. It may be called the State Police, State Troopers, Militia, the Rangers... or the Highway Patrol. These are the stories of the men whose training, skill and courage have enforced and preserved our state laws."
