The Arizona State Troopers Association

Serving Arizona and DPS for over 50 years...

Staying ahead of the rest and remaining the best.

Since 1958…

The history of the Arizona State Troopers Association can be traced to the “Arizona Highway Patrol Club” founded in 1937. The Chairman, Superintendent Rumans expected 100% membership from all patrolmen. The “1937 Arizona Highway Patrol Club” was primarily organized for the purpose of assisting members and the families of officers who were seriously injured or killed in the line of duty.

The Arizona State Troopers Association was established in 1958 and is “Dedicated To All DPS Employees.”  AZTroopers membership is made up of entirely of DPS employees and retirees, sworn and civilian, and is the only organization that represents only DPS employees.  AZTroopers Board is composed of sworn, civilian, and retiree leaders working together for the benefit of all DPS employees, its retirees, the DPS and the State of Arizona.  AZTroopers is a labor organization which continues to assist members with benefits such as life and cancer insurance, legal services, and financial planning.  Another one of the association’s main functions is to provide financial assistance to families of officers killed in the line of duty.  AZTroopers also offers scholarships to members and their dependents to Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona.

In addition, AZTroopers has grown to be a powerful lobbying organization in the state legislature. AZTroopers is constantly reviewing and testifying on behalf of law enforcement related issues at each legislative session.  Several years ago, AZTroopers became a PAC (Political Action Committee), offering support to those candidates who support and further the interests of the association and the Department of Public Safety (DPS).  The association has been extremely instrumental in obtaining new legislation to benefit DPS employees as well as Arizona’s residents.

The association provides support for the DPS Explorer Program, Special Olympics, the Uniformed Safety Educational Officer’s Workshop, the Make–A-Wish Foundation, and educational programs for children such as “Bumper” The Talking Patrol Car and DARE. The association also sponsors a yearly program known as the Christmas Patrol Bear Program, where DPS officers statewide converge at their local hospitals to spend time with ill and injured children in the hospital at Christmas time.

AZTroopers “Statewide Police and Support Services” concept embraces the level of impact that all DPS employees have on public safety in Arizona.  DPS sworn employees are the State of Arizona’s police force pursuing law enforcement efforts to keep Arizona safe.  DPS civilian employees provide a vital role in that effort.  Civilian employees perform crucial jobs that help sworn employees perform their law enforcement duties.  Both DPS sworn and civilian employee functions are absolutely critical to public safety throughout the State of Arizona.
