State Senator Marty Golden is announcing that the New York State Police, one of New York's most elite law enforcement agencies, is looking for recruits who are up to the challenge of undergoing the rigorous training that will prepare them for a stimulating and rewarding career in the service of New York. An amazing opportunity awaits the young men and women of our communities in the form of an agency that has a history of outstanding public service. The New York State Police are nationally recognized as one of the country's top law enforcement entities, and they are actively seeking a diverse group of candidates for the upcoming 2008 trooper exam.

Upon successful completion of the State Police Training Academy, new troopers are eligible to make over $60,000 per year. From there, chances for promotion are many, providing new career challenges as well as life opportunities. The benefits offered by the New York State Police are second to none, with ample vacation time, excellent health and dental insurance coverage, and retirement at half pay after
20 years.

Additional information about the New York State Police, including duties and special assignments, Academy training, and the on-line application process can be found on the recruitment website of the State Police,

Senator Golden stated: "As a former law enforcement officer, I can attest to how rewarding a career in public service can be. The New York State Police are an example of the best of what New York's men and women have to offer in the area of law enforcement and in the service of New York. Anyone who feels they are worthy of that responsibility should consider a career with the Troopers."
