It wasn't difficult to find troopers willing to provide security and traffic control during the Boy Scouts of America's national jamboree.
West Virginia State Police Superintendent Col. Jay Smithers said many troopers volunteered to work during the jamboree. A lot of them are former scouts.
Smithers told The Register-Herald that he expects to have 60 troopers at the jamboree being held at the Summit Bechtel Family Scout Reserve in Fayette County. On days when additional security is needed, another 25 troopers could be added to the ranks.
Some troopers likely will work in plainclothes as needed to provide security.
