South Carolina Highway Patrol Officer
South Carolina Department of Public Safety
As member of the 3% female demographic as a SCHP officer, I was responsible for investigating and disposing of car accidents, debris, dead animals and other impediments to the free flow of traffic. Impediments in the flow of traffic generally include the writing of warnings or ticket citations. Additionally, as a SCHP officer you're often the first government official at the scene of an accident and in turn may summon the EMS or Fire Department.
