Pathe Review: A Day With The State Troopers, 1932

Film documents daily activities of Troop K of the New York State Police at their headquarters in Hawthorne, N.Y. Includes footage of inspection; apprehension of fugitives in a car by Troopers on motorbike (likely dramatization); mounted police still in use "in the back country"; and use of technology, particularly teletype machines which "Day and night... pound out their cryptic messages of murder and theft."
