Exhibit Details The History Of North Carolina Highway Patrol

North Carolina State Highway Patrol

No one likes to see blue lights flashing in the rear view mirror.  But the officers who patrol North Carolina’s highways and interstates are sworn to protect and promote safety.  The exhibit "North Carolina State Highway Patrol: Service, Safety, Sacrifice" is currently on display at the Museum of History in Raleigh honors the North Carolina Highway Patrol’s 86 years, with memorabilia including vintage firearms, and a Ford model A coupe.  This week, Mac McKee speaks with North Carolina Highway Patrol Spokesperson Sergeant Mike Baker about the exhibit, the Highway Patrol’s long history, and their mission to protect.
