Executive Protective Unit

Unit Commander: Lieutenant Chris Clark

The primary responsibilities of the Executive Protective Unit are to provide security and transportation for the Governor and immediate family members. The most capable personnel from the Department are selected for this assignment to maintain a high level of loyalty, trust, and respect between the Governor and each trooper. In addition to providing security, this unit must coordinate with the Governor’s staff regarding the Governor’s scheduling, travel arrangements, lodging, and other necessary commitments to ensure cohesive and orderly activity.

There are times when out-of-state governors and other dignitaries visit the Commonwealth, and this unit coordinates their security needs and itineraries to ensure travel requirements and appointments are synchronized with those of the Governor.
