Unfortunately, State Patrol agencies (as opposed to State Police agencies) are pretty tough on retention and breed complacency. My State Patrol agency in my home state is underpaid, traffic-only, and has super-limited auxiliary assignments "SWAT" (giggle), Traffic Homicide, Auto Theft, DL Fraud, and one slot per region on task forces like JTTF, DEA, and ICE (those guys never leave).

Changing agencies, if you can do so within your retirement/benefits program, may be beneficial to you long term. SBI, for example, in your state might be a decent move for job satisfaction. You can always go fed if you meet their requirements and are down with a mobility agreement.

I don't know a single person who went long-term in a State Patrol agency who was satisfied, unless they were a traffic which case we aren't friends to begin with.
