The Protective Services Division (PSD) was established May 2012 and is one of the most unique Divisions within the THP. This Division is made up of two commands; the Executive Protection Unit, and the Capitol Protection Unit. Troopers and officers within this Division are responsible for operations pertaining to the protection of the Governor, legislative members, judges and other dignitaries, as well as, the State Capitol, state employees, and state facilities. PSD also works with state agencies to help provide instruction on bomb threats, personal safety, mail handling procedures and their response to violent intruders.
