State Transport Police

Our Mission

The South Carolina State Transport Police (STP) is the premier law enforcement division in South Carolina for enforcing both federal regulations and state laws pertaining to commercial motor vehicles. Although STP officers specialize in commercial motor vehicle enforcement, they also enforce state traffic laws for non-commercial drivers regularly.

The major objectives are to protect the motoring public by

(1) preventing accidents, (2) removing unsafe drivers and vehicles from our roads, (3) protecting our environment from hazardous materials being transported on our roadways and (4) preventing the premature deterioration of our roads and bridges through the STP Size and Weight Enforcement Program.
