The mission of your Montana Highway Patrol is to focus on safeguarding the lives, property, and constitutional rights of people traveling the ways of our State.
We support the mission of the Montana Department of Justice by providing courteous, professional, compassionate and responsive services in the areas of community education, enforcement, investigations, support services, interagency collaboration and community involvement.
We are committed to maintaining the public’s trust, being technologically advanced and efficiently using the resources entrusted to us.
The Patrol’s 243 troopers cover great distances to police our state highways, assist other law enforcement agencies and help motorists in need. Each year, the men and women of the Patrol:
- Drive more than 5.5 million miles
- Respond to over 160,000 calls for service
- Issue more than 85,000 arrest tickets and more than 100,000 warning tickets
Troopers provide public safety education presentations on nearly every subject related to driving safety, including seatbelt use, driving under the influence and child safety. To schedule a presentation, contact the nearest MHP district office.
