Colonel Michael Rapich
Superintendent of the Utah Highway Patrol

I started my career with this great organization nearly 30 years ago wanting nothing more than to serve others as a Utah State Trooper. That is as true today as it was then. I am honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve as Colonel of the Utah Highway Patrol, while continuing to work alongside the great men and women who are called Utah State Troopers.
