Explanation of the Resident State Trooper Program:
The State Police is responsible for providing law enforcement coverage, including patrol services, in 81 towns that either do not have an organized police department or have agreed to let the State Police supervise their police officers or constables. It provides the coverage through 11 troops operating from barracks across the state. Each troop is responsible for several towns. Normally, officers are not assigned to work exclusively with specific towns. Thus, some towns opt for law enforcement coverage in the form of state police officers stationed in the towns and working exclusively for the towns (i.e., resident troopers). The Troopers assigned to Resident Posts work in conjunction with Troopers on patrol from the barracks in Tolland.
By law, the public safety commissioner may appoint state police officers as resident state troopers in towns that do not have an organized police force. Resident troopers have the same powers as regular state police officers and are entitled to the same rights and subject to the same rules and regulations as the Division of State Police (CGS § 29-5).
