Ahhh yes...the 'ole California State Police! Most pople in CA didn't even know they existed. The were called the "silent service." In their hay days of the 1970s when they had plenty of funding they were a well-rounded full service agency. Unfortunately their budet was cut and slashed over the years until they could barely stay afloat and eventually in the mid-1990s they were absorbed into the CHP. Most state agencies that relied on the CSP will tell you they get nowhere near the level of service from CHP now that they used to from CA State Police... CHP seems to see their CSP duties as just a necessary evil compared to their primary traffic duties.
