DUTIES OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS

A State Trooper, Deputy Sheriff, or Police Officer may be required to
perform many duties. Including, directing traffic, assisting stranded
motorists, stopping violators for routine and non-routine violations,
responding to alarms, chasing suspects on foot, investigating traffic
accidents, investigating industrial and home accidents, making felony and
misdemeanour arrests, responding to vicious animal calls and complaints,
checking buildings for break-ins, interviewing suspects and victims,
testifying in court, executing search and arrest warrants, and more.

Most State Police agencies spend more time investigating traffic
accidents and enforcing traffic laws, while police departments spend more
time investigating non-traffic related criminal activity and other calls for
assistance. Police departments do investigate their share of traffic
accidents, however.

They are usually responsible for accidents occurring within their
jurisdiction. State police agencies may take on more traditional police
duties also, depending upon their agency, location, etc.
