Why GSP?

Do you have what it takes to earn the Big Hat?

No matter where you travel in the great state of Georgia, the familiar blue and gray patrol car of the Georgia State Patrol signifies the hallmark of service to our citizens and visitors who travel our roadways. The Georgia State Trooper is the personification of a law enforcement officer.

Troopers have a passion for justice, a desire to protect the communities we serve, and to make a difference in the lives of others. People count on Georgia troopers to apply their training every day for their protection and safety.

The Georgia Trooper is a person of character and proudly wears the Big Hat. Many have tried to earn the Big Hat, but few have succeeded. Do you want to make a difference in the lives of others? Do you have what it takes to be the best? If so, the Road to Trooper begins here.
