    Definitely.

    Looks like this is going to happen fairly quickly with the application deadline sometime in August and it also states on the PAT requirements that the information is only viewable within a few weeks of the actual PAT.

    ^ LOL the person who made that video is a tool.

    Fifty bucks an app is a little pricey. Concidering how small the department is, and the likely hood that everyone in RI will apply, this is going to be a tough department to get on.

    Hard isn't even the word last time they had a process they had like something crazy like 5000 applicants for less then 40 spots in the academy.
    I think they said 37 roster spots this time around....
    And yes they are a small dept. but they are considered the best of the best when it comes to state agencies.

    But in regards to the hiring practice they do it the correct way. They offer the test to any one who can PRE-QUALIFY, meaning x amount of college credits or military service, no severe criminal background violations etc. Then the physical is offered which washes out canidates, which is quite a few ( too many NY SYSTEMS in R.I., great sinful food but nonetheless a hazard to your health) then the background checks which, from I know from a P.O. in R.I. are very stringent where even a bad credit report could bounce you and that is a local p.d. not the RISP whose standards are even higher.

    I got a card stating the application deadline, August 3, 2008, and the expected academy commencement to begin in June 2009. It does seem like their process will weed out a lot of people with the preliminary application, the exam, and then the PAT. The odds are definitely against us, but you'd never know unless you try.

    The RISP Troopers come from somewhere...they don't just spring from the earth fully-formed. Everyone interested should apply.

    Any idea of how soon after the deadline closes they begin testing? I would be curious to know how much time I have to prepare if I were to apply.

    Pardon my ignorance, as I have never taken a PT test before. Are the sit ups performed with the elbows 'pointed' forward toward the knees? I have heard of other PT tests where the arms are locked out in a straight line with hands behind the head, and must break the plane with the knees coming up, but the RISP booklet says elbows must -touch- the knees.

    I would have edited my last post but didn't see an option to. I apologize if this has been answered before.

    No, no, no you got in wrong. Like Athena, MSP Troopers spring from the head of Zeus fully formed, armed and clothed in boots & breeches.

    Kind of off topic, but has anyone else noticed that RI Troopers are often "huge friggin' guys"? Quite a few of them that I have seen sure have been, I'm no Tiny Tim but they were some big dudes

    90% of you won't even be able to sit to take the test.
    Those who have taking it before know what I mean.
