Troop G News

    Troop G

    Troop G patrols the Maine Turnpike from the New Hamphire/Maine State Line in Kittery to Augusta. The Maine Turnpike is part of the I-95 system. Headquartered in Portland, Troop G consists of a Lieutenant, five Sergeants, three Corporals and twenty-five Troopers.

    Safety of motorists using the Turnpike is our main concern. The Troop utilizes the most modern radar and laser speed measuring devices. In addition the State Police Air Wing assists in monitoring traffic. Both marked and unmarked cruisers patrol the road.

    Troop G personnel are trained in speed measuring devices, drug interdiction techniques, impaired driver apprehension and commercial vehicle enforcement. Two weigh stations for commercial trucks are located in Kittery and York. Troopers also work closely with the federal Drug Enforcement Agency and the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Rest areas, parking lots and the information center located in Kittery are routinely patrolled to insure the safety of the public. Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable trip on the Turnpike whether you are a visitor to Maine or a daily commuter.

    Trooper Anthony Keim, serves as a Troop recruiter. Trooper Keim will answer any questions that you may have and guide you through the application process. If you seek an exciting and rewarding career, email these Troopers.
