Major Brian Shortall
Troop C Commander


On May 19, 2020, Troop C held their annual Memorial Ceremony.  Each May, each Troop honors the members of the New York State Police who have given their lives in the line of duty. 

Acting Troop Commander, Captain Jeffrey VanAuken addressed the troops.  The ceremony was attended by Colonel James Barnes and Staff Inspector Richard Mazzone Jr., Captains, Lieutenants, Sergeants and Troopers. 

The ceremony was small and private due to the COVID pandemic and troopers maintained social distance.  A wreath was placed by Trooper Nicholas Jones (USMC) honoring the troopers that have gone before us. Below are a few pictures from the ceremony.
