Public Safety

The Department of Public Safety is responsible for patrolling our highways, enforcing traffic laws, working non-injury, injury, and fatality accidents, and serving smaller communities with no municipal police force. Our legislature has failed to address funding shortfalls again for the 3rd year in a row. DPS Commissioner Michael Thompson warns of "crippling" effects if lawmakers slash DPS budget again this year by 15%.
