From all the State Troopers of Region 9 we are wishing you a safe and wonderful 2013.

15. Greetings from the Lands of Southeastern Utah-1

2012 HAS BEEN A GREAT YEAR for the Southeastern Area and we are especially excited for the upcoming year with the addition of several new troopers being assigned to many of the districts of Sections 9 and 13, bringing those districts to a level of manpower that has not been seen for several years. Section 9 also received a new secretary in the Section Office and we would like to welcome Amy Cox to the UHP Team.

Southeastern Utah sees an annual ebb and flow of travel as the tourism season comes and goes each year, with troopers stopping people from all 50 states and dozens of countries around the world as people travel to see the amazing natural wonders of our National Parks that make Utah such a draw to people of all nationalities. This year the Southeastern Region has seen a dramatic increase in all areas of criminal and traffic enforcement with the new troopers that joined the Region 9 would like to invite everyone to take the opportunity to come and visit the Natural Wonders of our Parks. There is more to see than one could hope to truly enjoy in several lifetimes when you consider the beauty of Arches, Canyonlands, Dead Horse Point, Goblin Valley, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Nine-Mile Canyon, Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry.

in 2012 and we look forward to seeing an improvement of those statistics as our new Troopers hit the road in 2013.

15. Greetings from the Lands of Southeastern Utah-2Christmas Eve saw Region 9 receive it’s first region wide snow fall in over a year and the Section 9 Troopers were extremely busy with wrecks and slide offs in all parts of Carbon and Emery Counties as people were reminded the hard way how treacherous a Utah snowstorm can be. Section 13 was a little softer hit as the time of day the storm arrived saw a dramatic natural slow down in the number of vehicles on the road. However, once the storms cleared out and UDOT got the roads clear and everyone was able to take a breath it was amazing to see our Red Rock Desert bathed in soft Utah Powder.

Region 9 would like to invite everyone to take the opportunity to come and visit the Natural Wonders of our Parks. There is more to see than one could hope to truly enjoy in several lifetimes when you consider the beauty of Arches, Canyonlands, Dead Horse Point, Goblin Valley, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, Nine-Mile Canyon, Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry and of course the opportunity to run the rapids of the Colorado and Green Rivers. So make your next vacation one that will bring you to see the world-famous natural wonders of our own state. From all the State Troopers of Region 9 we are wishing you a safe and wonderful 2013.
