Continue to Serve
The New York State Police welcomes applicants who have served in the military and are looking for a rewarding and exciting career. With a paramilitary structure and specialized assignments, those with military experience can continue to utilize their skills in a career with the State Police. The New York State Police offers several benefits for qualifying military applicants.
If you have applied but can't attend the regular exam period, you may request to take a military supplemental exam by showing your military orders.
If you are or were a member of the U.S. Armed Forces on a full-time active duty basis, you may be eligible to have extra credits added to your passing score on the written exam.
Military veterans may be eligible for an extension of the application age limit and active duty individuals may participate in the selection process if they are within 6 months of separation from service.
