They used to be, however, in 1995 or so, they merged with "state police". They handle incidents occuring on state property, in addition to all the highway stuff. So, if something was happening at say, the DMV (RMV), they respond - be it a licensing matter or a domestic in the parking lot.Disclamer, THIS IS NOT A DIG. But after reading the stuff on the site, I did not know that CHP had State wide jurisdiction. I was always under the impression that they were a strict highway patrol.....
