DUNMORE -- People in Lackawanna County had an opportunity to get an inside look of the State Police Barracks.

State Police in Dunmore held an open house on Saturday.

Troopers tell Newswatch 16 that unlike local police, state police are not able to interact with the community because they cover such a large area.

Events such as this one help them get to know the public.

People even learned how they could become a state trooper.

    I would rather deal w/PSP ANY day over a town cop. I’ve dealt w/ PSP on many different occasions between getting a ticket to finding out information on issues to even having them called to the property. They were always respectful and helpful. Just like teachers, parents and priests…sure you’ll have a few bad ones but the majority are good.

    It’s the behavior of a police force in the day to day dealings with the public that defines how they are perceived by the public. If they are respectful and honor their oath, and honest- then running an open house isn’t required to boast their image. If their not? Well…

    Every encounter or interaction that I have ever seen or heard…..they have been pompous idiots and major jerks.
    Did they rob or shoot anybody?
