AAST receives unprecedented in-kind donation
Colorado trooper featured on NYC jumbotron, sends message of safety, protection
State troopers personify safety and protection. And that is just the message that the photo of Colorado state trooper Ramiro Contreras and his newborn baby conveys.
"We are honored to be a part of such an impressive display and to work with our friends at the American Association of State Troopers," said Col. Scott Hernandez, chief of the Colorado State Patrol. "The jumbotron ad embodies the true spirit of law enforcement professionals nationwide who unselfishly protect their communities every day."
This unprecedented in-kind donation of advertising space in the advertising epicenter of the world was an outstanding opportunity for AAST to spread its message in support of America’s state troopers.
The jumbotron is located in a prime spot in Manhattan’s Times Square on 42nd Street at 7th Avenue. The massive full-motion, full-color LED screen measures 26 feet by 20 feet and will be seen by millions of commuters and visitors.
“Our goal is to let everyone know that state troopers are here to serve them,” AAST President Keith Barbier said. “As the advertisement says: State troopers protect you, and they protect your future.”
