One of four original Troops created in 1917, Troop G lies at the crossroads of New York State. Intersected by the primary arteries of upstate transportation and surrounded by densely populated commuter suburbs, tourist centers, and rural districts, Troop G features some of the most heavily traveled highways in New York State.
Both I-87 ( the Adirondack Northway) and East/West I -90 transect the region, bringing motorist and commercial haulers through in large numbers.
The region’s sprawling suburbs, rural communities, seasonal vacation centers and tourist attractions also benefit from Troop G services. Members of Troop G are a familiar presence throughout the southern Adirondacks, along the State’s inland waterways, and on the busy roads leading to attractions like the Saratoga Race Track and Performing Arts Center, Lake George, and the region’s many colleges and universities.
Working from 24 stations across 10 counties, the men and women of Troop G service the public safety needs of more than a million people a day in 118 towns, 49 villages, and 12 cities.
In 2010, Troop G added Zone 4 and took on the additional responsibility of policing the Capitol and Empire State Plaza in Albany.
