Information for Veterans

Veterans recruiting event

Did you know that nearly one-third of our trooper recruits are military veterans and those serving in the National Guard and Reserve?

As a paramilitary organization and Freedom Award winner, the MSP is military friendly. Benefits for veterans or those still serving include:

  • Eligibility to receive credit toward longevity and annual leave
  • Ability to purchase up to two years of service toward early retirement
  • Receive On the Job Training (OJT) benefits while attending recruit school (including a housing stipend)
