The Oregon State Police will be accepting applications to hire for several Lateral and Entry level recruit trooper positions starting January 22 at 10:30 a.m., using the State of Oregon's E-Recruit electronic application system.

The recruitment is necessary as OSP begins hiring to fill 40 vacant positions during the next year because many long-time troopers have retired over the last few years.

Persons interested in applying should start the process now by going to the Oregon State Police recruiting website at www.osptrooper.com.

The website helps interested applicants learn about the application process and what it takes to successfully apply, and clearly understand our qualifications and what it will take to get a jump on the required Entry Level Testing to be held March 2 and 3.

Applicants are urged to prepare beforehand for the application process and Entry Level Testing. Those who believe this is the lateral or entry level opportunity they have been looking for can create an account now by building a profile following the instructions detailed on the 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.  If you are interested in a challenging career that will provide you with a lifetime of memories, then consider applying with the Oregon State Police.  Information about our agency, the different opportunities that are available, how our hiring process works, and updates to our hiring process can be found at www.osptrooper.com.
