If you’ve ever thought about joining the New York State Police, the opportunity is now. Major Jeffrey VanAuken leads Troop C, which covers Cortland County.
You can sign up for the Trooper Entrance Exam at the date, time and location of your choice.
There are numerous opportunities within the State Police and some were showcased at the press event. They include our K-9 unit, CVEU (commercial vehicle unit), SORT (special operations response team), recruitment, CCSERT (contaminated crime scene emergency response team) and FIU (forensic identification unit). We also have drone pilots and members who are trained to operate snowmobiles! For more information about our exam, please visit: Joinstatepolice.ny.gov
