  • Hello All,

    I am very new to this forum and I just wanted to introduce myself.

    I prospect of being a trooper has always interested me very much. My background is as follows: BA Chemistry and current working title of Assistant director of Admissions (Secondary EDU/College).

    I guess my first question to any current troopers is, what was your background prior to being a NYS Trooper, Other than doing well on the entrance exam, what other things to they look for in applicants?

    Any info would be terrific.

        I haven't heard anything about NYSP hiring, but I hope we do soon. It's hard to make new supervisors without making new Troopers. And when I look at my own zone, almost every supervisor is eligible to retire.
        nothing at all to back up my theory, but i just have a funny feeling that we will start hearing about a class sometime shortly after the end of the fiscal year.....april, right?

            I was a deputy in another state for 4 years. Before that, I worked a variety of odd jobs, but was hired shortly after graduating college.

            • Common Sense

              More than academic titles Law Enforcement looks for people with common sense.

              Like enough to read the 264 pages on this thread before posting questions that have been answered numerours times in detail.

              As an aside; No matter your feelings Yeah or Nay for Governator Patterson, he has lowered the State payroll by 5 resignations this month !
              So that is closing in on 1 mill in salaries gone.

                      • Upward and onward...

                        Plus look at all the promotions that will come along (when "they" can pay for the new guys).

                        A Sgt retires, just one promotion, a high mucky muck retires, it's up the ladder for a whole lot of guys...

                            Excellent question MJC.

                              • Hello All,

                                I introduced myself a while back, but am still quite new to this forum. I am pretty young at 24, and with many of your predictions for the next academy in 2012 I will still be a young 26. I was just wondering some of your ages and background experiences, ie: Law Enforcement, Politics, etc.... Thanks guys. You have all been really helpful.
