Trooper Monty Mitchell

October 25, 1975 - February 08, 2021

Trooper Monty Mitchell was assigned to the Patrol Section at Troop C, DuBois when he passed away as a result of an on-duty medical emergency on February 8, 2021. He suffered the medical emergency in the station parking lot during his shift at approximately 9:00 p.m. on February 8, 2021. Station personnel attempted life-saving measures and called 911 but attempts to revive Trooper Mitchell were unsuccessful. He was pronounced deceased at Highland DuBois Hospital later that evening.

“Our department today feels the heartache of the sudden loss of a colleague and friend,” said Colonel Evanchick after Trooper Mitchell’s passing. “We ask Pennsylvanians to keep Trooper Mitchell and his loved ones in their thoughts during this difficult time.”

Trooper Mitchell enlisted in the Pennsylvania State Police in November 2007. In addition to Troop C, DuBois, he had also been assigned to Troop G, Huntingdon and Troop C, Ridgway during his career with the department.

Trooper Mitchell was added to the Memorial Wall at the PSP Memorial Day ceremony on Saturday, May 6, 2023. He is the 103rd member to be added to the wall.
