New Commercial!! What Was Your Day Like? A Trooper's is Never Routine What was your day like? Did you do the same thing today that you did yesterday, and the day before? A trooper's day is never routine.
In the Washington State Patrol's latest commercial spot the WSP highlights the types of things a trooper might do on a "typical" day, like speed emphasis patrols on a motorcycle, airlift rescues, and roadside stops/arrests. The new commercial also spotlights a few of the many career opportunities that can be pursued at the WSP like SWAT, Aviation, 911 Call Dispatcher and Crime Lab Scientists.
