After years of slashing the force amid budget cuts. The Michigan State Police are ready to build their number again and it could mean a rare career opportunity for you. MSP is kicking off its most aggressive recruiting campaign in more than a decade. Set to hire more than 300 troopers over the next two years.
They may be wearing 2 different uniforms but their main mission is the same, to serve. Trooper Marco Jones told Sgt. Jordan Brooks of the Michigan Army National Guard "you already have the structure and the discipline in what were looking for with the state police."
Sgt. Brooks says he has always been interested in the Michigan State Police because its another way to serve "I've always liked helping people and that could just be another way to help people." He is just one out of many service men and women MSP reached out to at the Michigan Army National Guard Armory in Grand Ledge on Saturday.
Jones said "I've been a recruiter since about 1999 and I can honestly say this is probably the most aggressive recruiting campaign I have seen within the department." There is already one recruit school under way right now and another one on the books for October with 130 spots open. There's even another one scheduled for April of next year, Jones says "were taking on more and more challenges and more and more duties throughout the state."
Trooper Jones says the department has the money to make up for numbers lost over the years, in fact there were years with no additions to the force at all. Between 2004 and 2008, not one trooper school was held, so with this current demand sits a unique opportunity. "you are serving your state, as well as your country so you have to have a willingness to serve and have that character that were looking for." A character made up of discipline, integrity and service, a kind of character many may not know they have until they try.
MSP will host a recruit orientation next Saturday, August 11th, where you can apply and find out what you need to know about getting involved. If you're interested it's from 1pm to 4pm at the Michigan Historical Library in Lansing on W. Kalamazoo.
