The Texas State Troopers Association was established in 1984 and is an independent voluntary membership organization for active and retired commissioned officers of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Membership is open to all active and retired commissioned officers of all ranks and all divisions of the DPS. TSTA is not part of the DPS or of the state government of Texas. TSTA is a non-profit, tax-exempt Texas corporation organized under section 501(c) (5) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Association relies solely on the contributions of citizens.
Donations to TSTA are not tax deductible as charitable contributions because it engages in legislative advocacy.
TSTA strives to improve the standards and conditions of employment, training, safety, retirement benefits, and education for its members and all Texas DPS commissioned officers through legislative advocacy and legal representation. In doing this, TSTA is dedicated to improving the quality of law enforcement all over Texas. The goal of TSTA is to protect and serve those who protect and serve us, the DPS officers of Texas.
Every day, commissioned DPS officers lay their lives on the line for the people of Texas. Please consider supporting the Texas State Troopers Association. Our mission is selfless. Our heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect and serve the people of the great state of Texas.
Membership is open to all active and retired commissioned officers of all ranks and all divisions of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
