NY State Police Plan To Recruit 330 New Troopers
by News


Budget documents show the New York State Police planning to train 330 more recruits in the coming year.

After attrition, they would increase the total of sworn officers to 4,657, up five-percent from the current fiscal year but still down more than 200 from the peak. State budget constraints temporarily halted recruiting more than three years ago.

The State Police held two classes this year with 340 recruits, graduating 133 in October. That was the first class since 2009.

The Cuomo administration is proposing a $732 million budget for state police for the year starting April 1.

That includes $36 million to implement tighter gun restrictions, including a new database, periodic pistol re-licensing and registration of semi-automatic rifles now categorized as assault weapons.
