Question AHP troops

I pulled up a map of AHP troops and ASP troops. They appear identical and have the same designations. (A - I). However, the RR data shows the AHP troops labeled as numbered troops, not by letter. I the RR list complete?

I ended up loading the entire ASP listing into each county we will be traveling through while in Arkansas.

Post the maps you found. I think they were showing the same. DoT districts are numbered while ASP troops are lettered. This has been discussed before in other threads and it's always confusing because ARDOT doesn't have that info published (last I looked, that is).

I wasn't clear in what I was trying to say. I meant to say - I think the maps you found are the same map (both showing ASP troops) as AHP districts are not the same and are numbered, not lettered. As has been discussed in the past, it doesn't seem like anyone can find a AHP districts map...or at least couldn't at that time.

Someone pleaseeeeee WIKI that, and with this and ASP map, no more confusion unless AR follows so many other states in combining dispatch centers, and planning redistricting (the last thank goodness is still just in talking stages in most places.) Because to combine AHP and ASP would be problematic in that if I recall, AHP, like MDOTE in MS, is centrally dispatched from the HQ. With ASP, like pretty much all State Police/Highway Patrol, has multiple regional dispatch centers. Also, anyone know if AR is ever adding an MAP (Motorist Assistance Patrol) system like the other states? Even MS has a limited one now from what I hear. (Nothing like LA, TN, NC, SC, IN etc,,,)

Yes, AHP is dispatched from one center in LR. ASP is dispatched at each troop HQ for that troop.

jbdinki,

Thanks for the map - I haven't seen that before and we've looked for it. I think milf probably remembers those discussions, too, as someone would always show up and argue that ASP and AHP were the same thing and (as you know) they aren't.

People tend to get confused because asp calls their patrol troopers the highway patrol division of the arkansas state police

That's probably true...and understandable when you consider that, I suppose.
