134th Trooper Recruit School Begins

Contact: Ms. Lori Dougovito, MSP Public Affairs Section, 517-284-3223

January 18, 2018

This week, 149 prospective state troopers started the first of 26 weeks of training at the Michigan State Police (MSP) Training Academy in Lansing. 

“Public service is a very rewarding career. I commend our new recruits for taking this significant step,” said Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of the MSP. “Thank you to Governor Rick Snyder and the Legislature for their continued support which has allowed us to hire the next generation of state troopers. I am confident they will protect and serve the residents of Michigan well.”

In order to be selected to attend the 134th Trooper Recruit School, candidates had to pass a stringent selection process that included a physical fitness test, background investigation and hiring interview.

The recruits will reside at the MSP Training Academy from Sunday through Friday each week. Between wake-up at 5 a.m. and lights-out at 10 p.m., they will receive instruction in firearms, water safety, defensive tactics, patrol techniques, report writing, ethics, first aid, criminal law, crime scene processing and precision driving in order to prepare them for careers as MSP troopers. 

Recruits who successfully complete recruit school will graduate on July 12, 2018.

The MSP is actively recruiting for future recruit schools. To learn more about a career with the MSP, visit www.michigan.gov/mspjobs.
