ST. PAUL (TEC News) - More than 40 trooper positions are being sought by the Minnesota State Patrol. Patrol staff says there are many options to obtain these positions with no requirement of prior law enforcement experience. Between July 1st and 12th, anyone interested in applying may do so at mntrooper.com.
Sgt. Jackie Sticha says "the State Patrol Law Enforcement Training Opportunity (LETO) program is a specialized recruitment effort that provides a pathway for those without a law enforcement background to become a state trooper. Anyone with a two- or four-year degree in any discipline may apply. The State Patrol pays for the LETO candidates’ law enforcement education."
Other opportunities are offered with these positions as well including flight patrols, search and rescue missions and blood & organ deliveries.
