OSP Recruiting New Troopers


The Oregon State Police is recruiting new troopers and is offering entry-level testing in March.

The OSP is preparing to hire recruit troopers in 2015 using the E-Recruit electronic application system. Lateral and entry-level recruit trooper applications will be accepted at 12:01 p.m., Friday, Feb. 9, 2015, and will be open until 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 6, 2015.

Persons interested in applying should start the process now by going to the Oregon State Police recruiting website. The website helps interested applicants:

• Learn the application process and what it takes to successfully apply
• Clearly understand our qualifications
• Find out what it will take to get a jump on the required Entry Level Testing

To better serve qualified applicants, OSP is scheduling two separate entry-level testing sessions – the first will be on Saturday, March 14 and the second will be on Monday, March 16. Both sessions will be held at the Oregon Public Safety Academy, 4190 Aumsville Hwy SE, in Salem.

Applicants should prepare beforehand for entry-level testing. Candidates can create an account now by building a profile following the instructions detailed on the OSP website. The complete application for employment is comprised of the E-Recruit profile, the supplemental questionnaire, and any required attachments.

The Oregon State Police is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages women and minorities to apply.
