Hey everyone.
I had a question regarding the Student Trooper program with the Massachusetts State Police.
I am a Police Explorer right now, but I am more interested in State Police
work than anything else. I was just wondering if any of you knew how to get more info on how it works, how to get in, ect...
Thanks

Do you know if there is an age limit? Do they accept you if you are still technically a student? I am taking a class a WENC, and I'd be very interested in the program. Thanks for any info you guys/gals might have. :lol:

The age limit is 15-17 yoa. It's sponsored by the American Legion and is held two separate weeks in the summer at the Mass State Police Academy in New Braintree. The cost is $150 for the week which can be paid for or sponsored by the American Legion depending on your financial situation.

I went through this program in the summer of 1996. I was a very rewarding and excellent experience. Hats off to the MSP for this program. :t:

Give the Framingham HQ a call, but I don't think there is a year round, or explorer program.

:eek:t: I tried to get into the Student Trooper Program when I was in High School. They had 2 spots open, and it was between me and two twin girls. Guess who got in? ](*,)

CD,

I am an assoc. advisor in a post and I can tell you at least in eastern mass the MSP has no posts. but you may want to check with your Council to find out if there is one. I too have hear great things about the Student Trooper program.

CPDexplorer,

I am actually kind of mistaken with my previous post from before. The Milford MA PD has an Explorer post that I believe use to be or still is kind of co-sponsored with the Grafton Barracks (C-2) what role the MSP has/had in it I don't know. How ever if you are interested you my want to try and contact the MPD to get more info
