About UHPA

The Utah Highway Patrol Association supports uniformed men and women of the Utah Highway Patrol from Trooper through the rank of Commissioner, retired Troopers, and communications specialists in the Department of Public Safety.  The Association board of directors consists of a one year term President, two vice Presidents, a secretary, a treasurer, a quartermaster, and twenty Region Representatives who stand for approximately 465 members.

We have standing committees within the board representing education, finance, labor, personal welfare, legal, legislative, retirement, and disability. The association is a non-profit, tax exempt corporation organized under section 501(c)(8) of the I.R.S code. Donations to UHPA are non tax deductible as charitable contributions but may be deductible as business expenses or for other purposes. We provide many organizations with charitable contributions.
