DSTA Telephone Solicitations

The sole telephone solicitation campaign conducted by the Delaware State Troopers Association is contracted with Police Publications and is primarily directed to businesses for advertisement opportunities in “The Delaware Trooper” magazine. Our magazine is published twice a year and is sent to active and retired Delaware State Troopers.

Proceeds are utilized to support our purpose and mission to our members and to provide financial assistance to enable us to continue to proudly sponsor various charitable organizations and activities.

If you would like to advertise in our magazine, please contact the DSTA.

Mission Statement/Purpose

The purpose and objective of the Delaware State Troopers Association is to improve the terms and conditions of employment of our members and to provide for their protection and general welfare through all democratic means. The Association also seeks to promote the spirit of cooperation and fraternity between the state of Delaware, Division of State Police and the Department of Safety and Homeland Security and all law enforcement agencies within the state of Delaware.

The vigorous and persistent pursuit of these precepts is the express intent of this Association, with the best interest of the Association at heart, and to encourage social, charitable and educational activities among police officers.

The Delaware State Troopers Association is an organization of the Delaware State Police, managed by our State Troopers, active and/or retired whose members do hereby agree to be bound and governed by our by-laws and who cannot strike.
