Job Description for State Trooper

State troopers are employed by state governments to perform police officer duties. A large amount of the state trooper's time is spent in a police station filing necessary paperwork. This is also where suspects that have been arrested or detained are taken for interrogation; once the trooper takes a suspect into custody, they must question them to obtain information about the alleged crime that has occurred. In the police station, they may also interview victims or witnesses for more information on a case. State troopers may also spend a significant amount of time in a court of law, providing testimony against alleged suspects that they have encountered. To recount this information accurately, state troopers are trained to record all information about an arrest right after the arrest is made. Testimony in front of a grand jury is also common.
