Careers with STP

There are three specialized units within the State Transport Police: The Haz-Mat/Level VI Team, the Motor Carrier Compliance (MCC) Team, and the DRIVE Team.

State Transport Police officers are assigned to work one of six regions when offered employment. Each STP Region consists of multiple counties, any of which an STP officer from that region may be assigned on a given day. The current STP Regions are listed below.
