It’s not about a long weekend or barbecues. It is about taking the time to pause and remember those that have given their all for us all. Thank you to those that will never hear the words.

Trooper Frances I. Galvin May 25, 1979 Trooper Galvin was the first female to be killed in the line of duty. On May 24, 1979, Galvin was investigating a fatal accident east of Pueblo involving a motorcycle and a car. At 10:20 p.m., Galvin stepped into the roadway to check a small bit of information she needed. She was struck by an eastbound vehicle. Galvin was taken to St. Mary Corwin Hospital in Pueblo. However, her injuries were too severe, and she died the next afternoon. Galvin entered the Patrol October 10, 1977.

These officers and agencies went above and beyond in saving lives through enforcement of DUI and seat belt laws. Several members and troops with the CSP were recognized and honored for their efforts. Congrats on a job very well done to all the recipients!

Trooper Taylor Thyfault May 23, 2015 On May 23, 2015, Trooper Taylor Thyfault was riding along with Trooper Clinton Rushing as part of his ongoing training at the Colorado State Patrol Academy. During the early morning hours, Trooper Thyfault and Trooper Rushing responded to a three-car crash on Colorado Highway 66. Shortly after 8:00 a.m., another State Trooper attempted to stop a vehicle in the area of I-25 and Colorado Highway 66, approximately 3 miles from the crash scene. The suspect eluded the trooper and drove towards the crash scene where Trooper Rushing was waiting to deploy stop sticks. The suspect hit Trooper Rushing and Trooper Thyfault while eluding the pursuing trooper. Seconds before he was struck, Trooper Thyfault instructed a tow truck driver to move and take cover to avoid being hit by the fleeing suspect. Trooper Rushing suffered serious bodily injury and Trooper Thyfault succumbed to his injuries instantly at the scene. Thyfault entered the Patrol March 15, 2015.

Your life is worth saving. Save it with a seat belt.

Yet again, we mourn for a fallen officer. To the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts to the blood and blue family of Sgt. Thomas Vitale of the New Mexico State Police.

As #NationalPoliceWeek2018 draws to a close, we are reminded why we work tirelessly each day: to improve. To improve ourselves, to improve our communities, to improve our nation, and to improve the lives of each person with whom we interact. Thank you for being our inspiration to improve and serve.

It’s hard to hold a phone if you have both hands on the steering wheel. Maybe we should just go back to every car being a manual transmission. Could help...

A lack of patience, leads to (hospital) patients.

The ironic thing is: the people that need to see this sign are the ones most likely to miss it. Texting while driving kills. #PhoneDownBuckleUp

As #NationalPoliceWeek continues we wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to our partners everywhere that are making a difference, wherever they are. Thank you!

On roads with speeds measured in miles-per-hour, seconds can make all the difference. If you're not paying attention, you're losing time that can save your life.

No matter how long you've been riding, you should still train if you want to rule the road: https://bit.ly/2GZrDo8. Tell us how many years you've been riding motorcycles. 👇

It's #NationalPoliceWeek2018 and the most dangerous aspect of the job that injuries and kills officers more than anything is being hit by a vehicle while on the side of the road. There are laws in all 50 states that require drivers to #MoveOver when approaching emergency, tow, and maintenance vehicles. Save a life: move over!

With gratitude, we bow our heads and remember those that have given the ultimate sacrifice. #NationalPoliceWeek2018

For #NationalPoliceWeek we have changed our profile picture to the blue flame, that all officers who have given their lives serving others may be remembered. We invite you to do the same.

We are who we are because of her. There are many that look up to us, but when asked who our hero is, inevitably...it is her. Thank you to all the mothers that are making a difference every day. You are the real heroes.
