To help minimize the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to put the health of its members and the Towing Industry first.  With that in mind, all 2020 wrecker inspections will be suspended until it is safe for everyone to proceed. The WHP intends to get these completed by June 30, 2020, unless something changes. Please continue to check the WHP website in the event this date gets pushed back.  If anyone has any questions regarding this, please contact the TRPC, Rodney Miears.
