      Don't hold your breath...With the threat of several posts being closed around the state and the lack of funding for MCOLES, I doubt it will be any time soon.

            I talked with a motor carrier officer the other day that used to be a recruiter and he said in 06 maybe spring or early summer for motor carriers. I thought they usually had them together. I hope hes right cause im trying for motor carrier. If you hear anything let me know, I'll do the same for you.

                They will be hiring motor carrier officers in the spring/early summer of 06. I know that for a fact. I am trying to get in as a trooper and there is no academy in the 06 fiscal year for sure. This is according to a recruiter that I spoke with the other day.

                  Its a shame that Michigan is in the state of economy that it is. No real jobs anywhere in my area. The problem is the state will decide last minute that oh we are going to have an academy in july 06, hurry up and get your test scheduled. In my county and adjoining counties the officers have to race for 20 miles sometimes to respond to a call they are so shorthanded. I usually respond to all local traffic accidents just to help with traffic control even when off duty. But Im also on the fire dept.

                    I currently work for the state as an environmental police officer and have been waiting for a Troop school as well. The budget is whacked and I hear not to expect one for a few years. I am sitting on a 100 civil sevice score that will expire in February too!

                    I have even heard rumors of trooper lay offs!

                    Be Safe!

                        The state might also close 3 posts. So it looks like things won't be good for quite awhile. Not too many other agencies hiring in MI either.

                            Yep, it looks like the Groveland Post, Grand Haven Post, & Iron River Post will be closing soon.

                              The budget supplemental to restore MCOLES training assistance grants
                              passed the Senate just prior to lunch time today (11/09/05). The bill also includes funding for the MSP Post's slated for closure. The bill is now on its way to the Governor for signature. I am told she intends to sign it.
