We're getting our first look at some new pins that have been issued to some Nevada Highway Patrol troopers who responded to the 1 October shooting.

The pins are inscribed with Route 91. 58 people were killed and hundreds more were injured during the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

13 Action News spoke with one trooper who told us that he will wear the pin with pride.

"I'm very humbled and proud to wear it. To me it is a tribute to the 58 souls we lost as well as the hundreds of others who are forever changed at no fault of their own," said NHP Trooper Travis Smaka.

68 troopers received the pin which they can wear on their uniforms.
