  • Highway Patrol/State Police accepting laterals?

    Are there any State Police/Highway patrol Depts who are hiring laterals that do NOT require them to attend the academy? I'm just curious. I've been asked several times this question and I tell them "no", just making sure.

    Thanks!
    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

    None that I know of. Closest to a "lateral" I'm aware of is a program initiated by the Alabama Dept of Public Safety within the past two years. That program allows Officers employed by other agencies, with Alabama POST Certification, to apply to DPS. These Officers must meet all DPS requirements, go through all phases of the testing process, and attend an "abbreviated" Academy of 14 weeks. Needless to say, that is not a "lateral transfer" but it's as close as you can come. You're correct. The answer is "No". Now, there may be one out there, but I'm not aware of it.

      That;s what I thought. The only one I can think of here in MD would be the MD Transportation Authority Police, and even then you have to do a 6-8wk Comparitive Compliance Session.

            I have seen some information that NC will send currently NC certified officers to an abbreviated academy. I do not know if they give a pay boost. Assuming you came from a department that already paid into the retirement system, you would at least keep your uears.

              The same here in the Commonwealth.

                for state agencies (don't quote me) - i think New Hampshire, Arizona and Maine do not require any additional academy training to be a trooper so long as you can certify in their state. i believe there are others as well.

                  Here they hire laterals, and from periodically the ASP holds a "certified-only" academy in which officers attend that are already experienced and certified thus the overall 21+ week ASP academy is condensed to something smaller.

                  The DOT aka Highway Police attend the same 12 week academy as all other cops here. Only the State Police and Little Rock P.D.'s academies are longer.

                      If CHP would get rid of the do-the-academy-all-over-again requirement for laterals, they would fill their vacancies in nothing flat.

                            "The New Mexico State Police is currently offering the "Officer Lateral Pay Program" and the "Officer Guaranteed Duty Location Program".

                            Officer Lateral Pay Program is designed to offer a higher STEP/Pay incentive to Officers who have between 01-05 years of previous Law Enforcement service. For example an Officer with another agency who has two (2) years of service would start with the NMSP at a STEP 2 or at
                            18.14 per hour or $37,727.00 annually.

                            Below is the breakdown for experience and pay.

                            Less than 2 years Placed at Step 1 or $ 17.48 per hour

                            2 but less than 3 years Placed at Step 2 or $ 18.14 per hour

                            3 but less than 4 years Placed at Step 3 or $ 18.80 per hour

                            4 but less than 5 years Placed at Step 4 or $ 19.45 per hour

                            5 or more years Placed at Step 5 or $ 20.11 per hour


                            The Guaranteed Duty Location Program is designed to keep good Officers in the community where they are from. The program starts at the beginning of the recruiting process with the applicant notifying the NMSP Training and Recruiting Bureau of the duty location they would prefer to be stationed at. Duty locations are only filled if a Tool Number or position is vacant at that location with the approval of the Chief of the New Mexico State Police. The New Mexico State Police works extremely hard at trying to get Recruits/Officers to the locations they prefer but the needs of the department must always come first. Please contact your local Recruiter or the NMSP Training and Recruiting Bureau for further information on the program."

                              North Carolina State Highway Patrol does not have an lateral program but they do have an short school that runs every once in a wile for those that are already certified. It is 16 weeks long.
