    Try the Maine State Police website or contact one of their recruiters they could help with most of these questions.

      Hey Eastside, I'm actually going through the process right now for the Maine State Police. There aren't any study materials for the alert test, it's a pretty basic reading and comprehension test. How old are you? Education? I took it with little to no trouble. They grade it on the spot. I'm taking the physical test next week, which consists of at least 29 pushups, 39 situps, and running 1.5 miles in under 12:51 for the 20-29 age group. After I pass that I go on to the oral boards, and once passing that I get put on a register ranked by how well I passed each test. They are currently recruiting for the academy which is in Vassalboro and is used by both the state and local pds. The academy starts in August and is 18 weeks. You do not have a choice where they send you. More than likely you will end up in a place you don't want to be, but with time you can request transfers. Where are you living now? If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
