Today marks the Washington State Patrol’s (WSP) 95th commissioning anniversary…and what a great 95 years it has been!

On September 1, 1921, six young men were commissioned as the first WSP Troopers. While many things have changed, our dedication to providing the best in public safety services has remained sturdy and strong.

Join us as we take a moment to look back on our agency’s history and celebrate the many more years ahead.
