The Pennsylvania State Police Historical, Educational and Memorial Center is looking for volunteers to assist in conducting oral history interviews of individuals who have experienced or knowledge of Pennsylvania State Police historical events. 

You already have the basic skill for doing oral history: these come from life-long experience in the processes of human interaction. The oral history interview builds on this basic social competence.

We will train you in how to do background research, how to do pre-interview research, teach you the techniques of oral history fieldwork, and you will learn the many other processes required to make you successful at oral history interviewing.

We will also train and furnish you with the necessary equipment needed to document the oral history.

All oral history training is provided absolutely free!

The Oral History Project is looking for individuals in the northwest, northeast and central regions of the state of Pennsylvania who would be interested in conducting interviews with chosen Pennsylvania State Police retiree narrators. The volunteeer interviewers would be trained in conducting Oral Histories and would be compensated for their mileage and meals during the interview sessions. We are looking for individuals who want to preserve the history and heritage of the Pennsylvania State Police.
If you are interested or would like more information please contact Kim Cady at the Pennsylvania State Police Historical, Educational and Memorial Center (PSP-HEMC) at (717) 534-0565 or send us an e-mail.
