History Of The Iowa State Patrol

In 1935 fifty men were sworn in as the first officers of the Iowa Highway Safety Patrol.

Today on Talk of Iowa, we go back in time to origins of what is now the Iowa State Patrol. We hear stories about those first 50 officers and the woman, Iowa’s first female secretary of state, who founded the patrol.
