Troop E maintains an excellent long-standing cooperative resource coordination agreement with the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department. Within that relationship, Troop E troopers work daily with deputies. Penobscot County is divided into 6 rural patrol zones staffed by troopers and deputies, and two interstate zones. The southern interstate zone includes I-395. The interstate zones are always staffed by troopers. Troop E coordinates investigations and training with the Penobscot County Deputies. In August of 2005 Troop E and Penobscot Deputies trained jointly in crowd control at the University of Maine at Orono.
Troop E troopers are relied upon heavily by the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, over recent years supplying two sergeants and 1 trooper as part of the training staff on the Basic Law Enforcement Training Program. In addition Troop E supplies many man-hours of training to support the Maine Criminal Justice Academy and other law enforcement agencies.
