Louisiana. They strive to keep each and every one of us safe everyday. And today they celebrated their 75 year history, at their headquarters in Baton Rouge.

The 28th is the day State Police was effectively created by then Governor Huey P. Long in 1936. It’s been 75 years full of challenges for the department, but they’ve always stood strong.

“We’ve got a colorful past. We’ve been involved in a lot of different things. What remains true here today is the integrity of why we wear this badge,” says State Police Superintendent, Colonel Mike Edmonson.

Integrity and the service of current, former, and fallen troopers were honored at Wednesday’s ceremony.

“State Police is responsible for developing me into the law enforcement man I am today. The discipline, the organizational skills, the experience,” explains St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz, who retired from State Police in 2005.
