    With FHP you have to attend the academy for about 9 weeks and you get to pick your duty station before accepting the job offer.

    The Kentucky State Police does have a lateral program but they have not run a lateral class in almost two years. Instead of attending the traditional 22 week academy, "laterals" do 11 weeks. This program may or may not still be in existence. Go to kentuckystatepolice.org and look for human resources phone number. They would probably be more than happy to let you know.

    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.

    "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."

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

    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!
    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.

    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.

    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.
