What is the difference in Massachusetts between becoming a state trooper or a city cop?
I know that city cops only have jurisdiction in their city, and I know state troopers can go anywhere in the state. What I want to know is what is the difference between the jobs themselves? I know state troopers do traffic work, but do they get to do regular police work as well? I'm contemplating between becoming a state trooper or a city cop but I just need to know more about both positions. Thank you for answering my questions.

If you like patrolling the interstates and enforcing traffic laws then try to join the state police. If you want to be the real police and respond to peoples homes when they call 911 then try to join the city police.
