Call of Honor

In 1929, the Superintendent of the Pennsylvania State Police issued a General Order requiring all members of the Department to memorize the State Police Call of Honor, a tradition that still holds true today.

I am a Pennsylvania State Trooper, a soldier of the law.

To me is entrusted the honor of the force.

I must serve honestly, faithfully, and if need be, lay down my life as others have done before me, rather than swerve from the path of duty.

It is my duty to obey the law and to enforce it without any consideration of class, color, creed or condition.

It is also my duty to be of service to anyone who may be in danger or distress, and at all times so conduct myself that the honor of the force may be upheld.
