FBI, NJ State Police, and the NSA History.
The New Jersey state police, from 1921-2000
The state police were started in 1921 by Norman Schwarzkopf.
They had 120 members.
Then in 1939, the war hit.
The police tried to help out as much as possible, manning bridges and roads in the foreign countries.
Then in 1942, an important piece of equipment was added. It was the two way radio. This allowed officers on the
road to respond to crimes and accidents faster and easier than ever. After the two way radio, the police had an idea
to broadcast safety tips and advice over the radio to try and ensure safer driving.
Finally in 1950, the force expanded its employment to 455 men.
In 1951, the New Jersey Turnpike opened, which would allow for a faster travel all the way through New Jersey.
The organization had its first real test. They had to guard the president and the Soviet president while they were trying to strike a deal about the cold war.
The last and biggest problem the officers are facing is now drugs.
The 80’s and 90’s were known for the high use in drugs, and that showed in New Jersey. Drugs are still a very common problem in America today.
July 26, 1908, the FBI is founded.
In June 25, the FBI had their first task: Surveying Prostitution Houses.
