Job description / duties
A state trooper has many responsibilities. Some response abilities they have re things like making sure people are following driving laws on the highway and turnpike. They also have to take care and assist any people who have been in an accident until the ambulance shows up. Another thing they are responsible for is keeping the traffic under control and watching to see speeding or drunk and intoxicated drivers. The responsibilities that I would like is making sure the drivers follow all driving laws and watching out for speeding or drunk and intoxicated drivers. Why I would like this responsibility is because it would make me feel good about myself because I would know that I was keeping a lot of people and children safe. But there is a responsibility that I would not like and that has to assist the people who have been in accidents and need the ambulance, why I would not like that is because I would not like to have the image of people hurt in the back of my head it would haunt me to see people hurt. I understand from just watching TV shows like cops and seeing some of the graphical images they see while people drive recklessly. So that's one of many responsibilities that I would not like to have.
