Trooper Support

Below are just a few of the ways your membership will connect you with other troopers.


The quarterly Trooper Connection newsletter is distributed to 3,400 AAST members and affiliated organizations quarterly and is available online year round. It celebrates trooper achievements, remembers officers lost in the line of duty, and shares compelling stories of how AAST helps troopers and their families.


One of the best ways to keep up with troopers across the nation is to follow AAST on Facebook. Frequent updates provide stories ranging from community involvement to breaking news. Stay informed, become a fan today!


From Our Members


"Your gift will further my education and allow me to follow in the footsteps of family members before me. My grandfather, Captain Joe F. Dixon (retired), served Florida Highway Patrol for 39 years and my dad, Major Jeffrey S. Dixon, has been on the patrol for the past 25 years. My family has been in FHP for several decades and someday I hope to join the ranks of the patrol and pursue a career in law enforcement.

I know AAST supports the education of troopers and their families through scholarship opportunities, and I am truly grateful to be a recipient. Man’s flight through life is supported by the power of his knowledge and your gift will certainly help me sustain my educational and professional goals. As a part of a trooper’s family, this opportunity means a great deal to me and my family. Thank you to everyone at AAST and to the troopers and retirees across the county who support the scholarship program.”
