Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker-1905

Gov. Samuel Whitaker Pennypacker

Untried by any state in the union, on May 2, 1905, Governor Samuel W. Pennypacker signed Senate Bill 278, an act creating the Department of State Police. This was the first of its kind in the nation. Immediately following the enactment there was national interest generated in this new venture for bringing law and order to the rural countrysides. Almost without exception every segment of the nation was faced with a rural law and order problem similar to that found in Pennsylvania, and Pennsylvania's success with a state police organization was bound to influence the direction of other states.
