   Do you have what it takes to be a Connecticut State Trooper?

   The Connecticut State Police is now accepting applications for State Trooper Trainee. The 2014 application period will commence on May 8 and end on May 23, 2014.

   This process includes administering all testing phases from the written examination up until applicants are appointed to the Training Academy for recruit training.  This includes written test, medical exam, polygraph examination and a background check. Fairness and consistency throughout the process is ensured by the State Police Recruitment and Selections Unit.

   The selection process will be administered in such a way that only those applicants who meet the various job-related standards are offered positions of appointment. The Recruitment and Selection Unit will actively recruit and participate in events that will foster a diverse applicant pool.

   To be considered applicants must:

-          Be at least 21 years of age by the expiration of the application period

-          Be a U.S. citizen by date of appointment

-          Be in general good health and of sufficient strength, stamina and agility as required by the duties of the position

-          Possess a high school diploma or GED by completion of training

-          Be free from felony or Class A & B misdemeanor convictions

-          Have a good education and/or work record and excellent moral character 

   The selection process reflects the Affirmative Action commitment of the State of Connecticut and, in particular, the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection.

   “We are looking for a few good men and women to join the first and finest State Police agency in the nation. Applicants are encouraged to begin the process of becoming a Connecticut State Trooper and making public safety their top job priority,” said DESPP Commissioner Dora Schriro.
