West Trenton NJ, Colonel Patrick J. Callahan Raises the 100th Anniversary Flag at New Jersey State Police Headquarters. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the New Jersey State Police—1921 to 2021. Throughout the year, we will be highlighting significant events in our history as well as several special commemorative projects.

One-hundred years ago today, Senator Clarence Case introduced Senate Bill #74, which was simply known as “The State Police Bill.” That bill would ultimately be signed into law on March 28, 1921, forming the Department of the New Jersey State Police.
In recognition of this important date, Colonel Callahan personally raised the official 100th anniversary New Jersey State Police flag alongside a trooper wearing a historical uniform.
Follow us throughout this year as we share significant historical events, lesser known stories, and old photos that will take you through 100 years of our rich and storied history and faithful service and dedication to the citizens of New Jersey.
