State Patrol Section Contacts

The Colorado State Patrol is a quasi-military organization, which means it observes traditional military etiquette and customs. For example, the Patrol routinely conducts personnel inspections, observes a formalized chain-of-command rank structure, requires its troopers to salute commissioned officers, and abides by strict uniform and personal grooming standards. In many other respects though, the Patrol is not unlike any other law enforcement agency. The Colorado State Patrol is structured in a classic hierarchical fashion, with members of higher rank assuming command over a greater number of subordinates and being entrusted with more responsibility. There are primarily three levels of organization within the Colorado State Patrol:

 

Troops/Sections/Units: Commanded by a Captain or Civilian Equivalent

 

The troop/section/unit is the first step in the organization's hierarchy. "Troops" describe a field office, where the bulk of our troopers are assigned to carry out the Patrol's traffic safety mission. "Section" and "unit" are similar to troops, but they are considered specialized work centers within the Patrol. Examples would include the Executive Security Unit or the Hazardous Materials Section. Sections and units either perform specialized enforcement activities or provide material support to field troops, while troops primarily perform traffic enforcement activities and crash investigation.
