    Thank you OHPhopful, good info. The emergency part is just have fast it takes affect, I assume. Since it didn't pass, will the academy be in February, sooner or later? I wonder win they were planning to have it if the emergency part would have passed?

      Probably would have run one in the fall if the emergency part had passed. Kinda surprised that didn't pass to be honest.

            Well, it seems as though once again the state legislature has made a questionable decision regarding funding the trooper academy.

            If this thing doesn't pass on the anticipated re-vote, I would once again be making sure I contacted my state senator if they voted against it.

                  Seriously, you guys need to take a look at who voted "No" on this bill. If any of those "Nay" votes are your representatives or senators, you need to voice your displeasure with their vote and make sure they understand that not only will you not be supporting them in the future, but that you will actively aid their opponent(s).

                      Great news. I just got the call from my uncle who is a Major in the OHP. Taking applications June 1st and academy will be in February. He said academy might be a little sooner if they get everything together that fast but they probably wont be able to until the normal start date of Feb. 28th. This is not rumor its a go!

                        I just heard the same thing from a trooper in my area.

                            The big part is you run the 300 sprint rest for several mins then do your sit-ups and rest a few again then do your 1.5 run. Train with the sprint part first then the long run.

                              Just found out today they have money for 25 cadets which means they will hire 35. They said they expect that many to quit. They are talking to the turnpike trying to get them to pay for a few which means they might hire up to 45 for the academy. So for sure at least 25 with the possibility of up to around 45. Good luck everyone. Taking apps June 1st.

                                We did the 1.5 first....then sit ups, then push ups, and finally finished off with the 300. I got the 300 handled easy. It's the distance running that kills me.
