Alabama recruiting more state troopers

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

Alabama officials want to put more state troopers on the road.

The secretary of law enforcement says more than 1000 state troopers are needed to cover the state. Right now there are only about 400 on patrol. A new law reorganizing law enforcement employees will help put more troopers on the road, but it will still fall short of the goal.

Officials will examine all of Alabama's existing law enforcement agencies and determine what duties can be consolidated to get more officers on patrol duties.
