West Trenton, N.J. - Today Colonel Patrick J. Callahan marked the opening of the New Jersey State Police application process. Applications will be accepted online from today April 29, 2019 to Sunday, May 12, 2019. All eligible men and women are encouraged to apply. Those interested should visit www.NJTrooper.com to complete the online application.
Troopers can pursue one of the more than 120 diverse career paths that the State Police offers based on personal interests and specialized skills, while also working to ensure the public’s safety. The New Jersey State Police has embarked on an intensive recruiting campaign with assistance from Governor Phil Murphy, Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal, members of the Governor’s cabinet, and members of the New Jersey legislature.
“To anyone who aspires to make our communities stronger and safer, there can be no higher calling than serving the people of New Jersey,” said Governor Murphy. “We encourage men and women to join the next generation of law enforcement leaders who exemplify the ideas of the New Jersey State Police – Honor, Duty and Fidelity.”
“As Attorney General, I have the opportunity to work closely with our State Troopers, and I can tell you that there are few careers more rewarding – or more meaningful – than one with State Police. When you put on that uniform, you become a leader, a problem-solver, a role model, and a protector of your community. You have the chance to build relationships and save lives,” said Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. “Our State Troopers serve every community in this state, which is why it’s so important that our Troopers come from every corner of this state. We want applicants from all backgrounds and life experiences.”
“We are committed finding the best and brightest men and women to serve as New Jersey State Troopers who not only reflect the great diversity of our state, but who will advance our mission in the decades to come with fresh and innovative skills and perspectives,” said Colonel Patrick Callahan. “I would like to thank Governor Murphy, his cabinet members, and the New Jersey legislature for greatly assisting the State Police with our recruiting campaign.”
Here are the minimum requirements to apply:
Applicants must be at least 21 years old and must not reach their 35th birthday prior to the graduation of their State Police class.
Applicants must be a U.S. citizen and must have a current driver’s license at the time of application.
