Certified Police Officers

Prior Certified Police Officers

The Connecticut State Police is now compensating Prior Certified Police Officers (with 2+ years experience) that enter into the State Police Training Academy at a higher rate of pay. 


  • Candidates with this experience will still be required to attend and graduate the full Training Academy.

  • Operational needs of the agency will weigh heavily on the initial assignment of hired Troopers. During the training period, DESPP will work with the State Police Trooper Trainees to identify locations that are geographically compatible to their desired location.

  • Hired troopers will be required to work various shifts throughout their career. We are seeking qualified individuals who are trustworthy, motivated, and driven. Individuals should be able to work well on their own, as well as in a team environment.

  • Note, this is not considered a lateral transfer.
