"The State Trooper" Net Ring was created on January 18, 1998. I am Senior Sergeant Terry Martin, of the Vermont State Police. In January 1994, I retired from 30 years in the Criminal Justice System. That's why you see this particular color scheme here. Green and gold are both the State of Vermont and the VSP official colors.
I hope you will give strong consideration to joining "The State Trooper" Net Ring. Joining will connect you, your site, and family to a "Family of Troops" and supporter sites across this nation and the world!
For my purposes
and in respect for the "Old and New Officers and Troops"
the term "The State Trooper" is meant to be synonymous
with "Trooper, Highway Patrolman, Highway Patrolwoman, Patrol Officer, State
Patrolman, State Patrolwoman, State Patrol, State Police, State Policeman, and

We're were "152 Members" Strong until Yahoo took over. Then a new ring took them over. I was not happy with what they had to offer so I searched around and found RingSurf. This NEW Ring is much better and goes back to the automated and easier format!
IF you're an Previous Member, be sure to re-enlist! You'll be sent an new ID, much like the old system.

How is Ring Integrity Ensured?Top
It is very bothersome to ring members and surfers to cycle through net rings and hit a blank page of a site no longer on the web or a site that does not have its Net Ring Graphic to continue from. ALSO, it is IMPORTANT that you put "The State Trooper" Net Ring Graphic (code) on the same page that you put as being your site location and you may wish to consider (if it's not your front page) putting a link from there to your front page, so that others can get there?
That's why The Net Ring Administration developed a utility to let me test the integrity of "The State Trooper" Ring. This utility checks every member of the ring to make sure their pages are still up and that the pages contain the required Ring HTML. When I find that a page is found lacking in any area - I will e-mail the owner of the page to inform them of the problem and see if there is anything I can do to help.
You will have 7 days, from the date that my warning was sent, to correct the problem or inform me of when the corrections should be expected. If no answer is received the page will be removed from the ring. You "may" be added back in later upon request on reconfirmation of site content.
Again, if you have any questions or need help please e-mail me right a way.
It is my intention and purpose to provide a Professional Net Ring that contains sites that all members of the family, especially kids, and others may come to, surf from and not worry about what the content is. If you have already been rated by organizations like the following, you will have no problem with this Criteria: Family-Friendly, Safe surf, Global Family Network, RSACi, or Web Clean. The sites accepted into this ring is open to and must:
1. Be an Official State Patrol or State Police Site, Association, Union, Unofficial Site and Home page of a
FURTHER, it is open to the equivalent military, equivalent departments from countries outside of the USA, and Members of the General Public (who demonstrate, on their site, a strong Supportive Ethical Philosophy towards the Troops and Law Enforcement agencies within the CJ System from the enforcement view.

You can ALSO add the HTML fragment using another method. Use whichever you are comfortable with. The other way is to go into your "edit mode" on THIS page and "Copy" and "Paste" it. You know, highlight all of it, do a "Control C" and then on you page do a "Control V" to paste it?

While this site is a "For Troopers ONLY" (or their equivalent) Net Ring, it is not my intent to present us in a "elitist" manner. It is for the "esprit de corps" that we all should have for own organizations, agencies and departments.
Having seen the "Smorgasbord" of local, county, federal, corrections, CJ and other specialized ring webs, I didn't want to take away from, nor add to them. In fact I'm presently a member of Thirty (plus or minus) other rings right now! I know that those Ring Masters put a lot of time into their rings wanting to be unique. Instead, I wanted to present an additionally uniquely- fresh Net Ring like this.
"The State Trooper" Net Ring management reserves the right to turn down and take off this ring ANY person or site that does not meet the above Criteria or maintain same without recourse.
