Alabama State Trooper Numbers Are Dangerously Low
AL.com: The Alabama State Trooper Association today called on legislators and Gov. Kay Ivey to address what they say is a critical shortage of troopers on the road. The problem is not new and is mostly the result of budget cuts, officials said. Today’s weather could demonstrate how the shortage affects drivers and passengers, they said, with an expected accumulation of snow that could cause road hazards and incidents that demand prompt response from troopers.
