Trooper Wade has been a Trooper with the Highway Patrol for 13 years.

Upon successful completion of the academy, he was stationed in Devils Lake until transferring to Jamestown two years ago.  

Brandon remains involved in department-level committees such as North Dakota’s Vision Zero campaign-working to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities as well as the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance- specific to truck safety.  

Trooper Wade maintains and deploys the department's Commercial Vehicle Performance-Based Brake Tester at various locations throughout the state, as part of the department’s level 1 motor carrier inspection program.  

A few years ago, Brandon spearheaded and continues a charity event called No Shave/Nail Polish November.

Members of the patrol had an opportunity to take part in the event to raise funds for a charity. Last year, Troopers, department employees, and members of the public combined donations totaling over ten thousand dollars to cure Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Trooper Wade consistently brings a great work ethic every day and is committed to the mission of the Highway Patrol – making a difference every day by providing high-quality law enforcement services to keep North Dakota safe and secure.
