Over the years, State Farm has funded several grants to the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) that paralleled common areas of concern, including highway and home safety, reducing auto theft and other crime prevention and safety and preparedness efforts.
One of earlier partnerships came in 2003, when State Farm funded the purchase of digital cameras to aid the investigations of the PSP Fire Marshall Unit. Col. Pawlowski headed the Bureau of Criminal Investigations and annually supported State Farm Child Safety Day events with Troopers certified in Child Passenger Safety.
Both PSP and State Farm continue to work closely with the Pennsylvania DUI Association to reduce impaired driving on our highways.
During Col. Pawlowskis Concordville visit, he was presented a $10,000 grant by Vice President-Operations Sue Murray and Vice President-Agency John Raube, among others, to support PSPs work on teen driver safety. During the presentation, Pawlowski lauded the efforts of State Farm in safety and prevention, and he assured those on hand he would advise the nominated PSP Commissioner Frank Noonan that State Farm is a friend.
