We are in the beginning stages of a Recruitment Drive for our upcoming entrance exam tentatively scheduled for early 2022. Our goal is to reach those individuals within the community dedicated to wanting to make a difference so we can continue to serve the people of the state of New York in the best possible fashion.
The selection process is job-related and competitive in nature. The process is designed to determine a candidate’s potential for success in the NYSP Academy, and as a State Trooper. No prior police experience is required. The first step in the selection process is to complete our entrance exam application. Get notified when the next Trooper Entrance Exam is available.
After applying, the complete selection process consists of:
- Passing the Written Examination
- Physical Ability Test (PAT)
- Psychological Evaluation
- Background Investigation and Polygraph Test
- Medical Examination
Following the written examination, an eligibility list is established and remains in effect for a minimum of one year, and a maximum of four years. Candidates will be ranked in order of written scores, plus any applicable veteran’s credit.
As new trooper positions are authorized, candidates from the eligibility list will be notified to appear for processing. It is extremely important to keep your information updated so that we may be able to contact you when your rank is reached.
