“From the time a new cadet enters into the State Police Academy, they are told they are never really off duty.  These comments are not only made to them in the academy but they are reinforced throughout their careers.  These statements reflect our expectations, as a society, that police officers have obligations and responsibilities that are inherent to their positions, not their duty status” retired KSP Captain Brian Bowling said.
