The Colorado State Patrol is a quasi-military organization, which means it observes traditional military etiquette and customs. For example, the Patrol routinely conducts personnel inspections, observes a formalized chain-of-command rank structure, requires its troopers to salute commissioned officers, and abides by strict uniform and personal grooming standards. In many other respects though, the Patrol is not unlike any other law enforcement agency. The Colorado State Patrol is structured in a classic hierarchical fashion, with members of higher rank assuming command over a greater number of subordinates and being entrusted with more responsibility.

Districts/Branches

Commanded by a Major or Civilian Equivalent
The next level in the organization is the district or branch. A district or branch is often comprised of several troops, sections, or units. A "district" is used to distinguish field personnel from those assigned to a branch, which generally provides material or investigative support to the field. Our Support Services Branch, for example, provides material support to the field districts and includes the Procurement and Supply Section, Facilities Management Section, and the Fleet Operations Section. District One, a field district, is comprised of the Golden Troop, Castle Rock Troop, and the Adams County Troop offices. The Patrol currently maintains five field districts, each of which is centralized in a particular geographic area of the state.

Troops/Sections/Units

Commanded by a Captain or Civilian Equivalent

The troop/section/unit is the first step in the organization's hierarchy. "Troops" describe a field office, where the bulk of our troopers are assigned to carry out the Patrol\'s traffic safety mission. "Section" and "unit" are similar to troops, but they are considered specialized work centers within the Patrol. Examples would include the Executive Security Unit or the Hazardous Materials Section. Sections and units either perform specialized enforcement activities or provide material support to field troops, while troops primarily perform traffic enforcement activities and crash investigation.

Report An Aggressive Driver

Dial *CSP (*277) To Report an Aggressive Driver
[collapse collapsed title="Report an Aggressive Driver "]

The Colorado State Patrol\'s Star CSP (*277) aggressive driver program was implemented on July 1, 1998. The CSP partnered with several cellular companies to provide a phone number, free of charge, to be used by motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to report "real time" aggressive driving behavior. The phone number is Star CSP (*277). Since the program was started, the CSP has received more than 230,000 reports of aggressive drivers.

Some examples of aggressive driving behaviors are moving violations that put other motorists at risk, such as improper lane changes, following too closely, weaving, passing on the shoulder, and speeding.

When observing an aggressive driver that is putting other motorists at risk, the aggressive driver should be avoided by getting out of the way, not making eye contact or giving any indication of disapproval of their driving behavior. Contact the CSP as soon as is safely possible and be prepared to provide the following information: vehicle description, license plate number, location and direction of travel, driver description, and the aggressive driving behavior being demonstrated.

Give the dispatcher the exact location (road and direction), a description of the vehicle, and the manner in which the vehicle is being driven. Do not attempt to follow or pursue the vehicle. Your call is free and may save a life -- or many lives!
