On March 19th, 1935 when Governor J.M. Futrell and the Arkansas General Assembly approved and signed into law Act 120, known as the Chrip-Carter bill, the Arkansas State Police was born. In cities and towns across Arkansas today there are men and women who proudly wear the badge of the Arkansas State Police. Their distinctive uniform which includes the wide-brim campaign hat sets these law enforcement officers apart and without a second glance local citizens know they are in the presence of Arkansas State Troopers.
