Basic run down. New York is finally offering its state trooper exams for the first time in a while. Great you might think, well I am not a new York resident. I live in Massachusetts and the last one here was in July or June I believe of this year. I signed up for the New York exam which is this October in about 2 weeks. One of the requirments of course is proper identification as you need to be a New York resident at the time of hiring/training I believe. Well being out of state I do not have anything to really get me in the door. My passport is very old and expired years ago and I am not sure what to do. I am not a resident and I have no experience to help me take the exam beyond study material I found. The reason I am taking it is for the experience of taking the exam so that one day hopefully in the next few years my state will offer one again and I will take it. Any thoughts or opinions on this? I am kind of lost.

I would suggest looking at their recruitment website ( www.nytrooper.com/qualifications.cfm) and ask a recruiter directly.  I would imagine they have out-of-state applicants all the time.


You should ask at what point during the hiring process you would need to be a resident of the state.  If you are accepted into their academy, is that start date considered your date of appointment? Or are you sworn in after graduation?

You are way over thinking this. When one graduates from the academy they get their assignment which can be any where in the state, Axe a recruiter as suggested by MetroRW30. I know in my state one is sworn in after the academy and P.O.S.T. approved. Relax and take a deep breath.

I must concur with my good friends uncledennis and MetroRW30.Make certain you ask the proper authorities A.S.A.P. as it varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction as well as from state to  state.In the four jurisdictions in two states I worked at you must be a resident of the required place you are being sworn in at,Prior to being sworn in.The major job I worked was a city on a state border.The Personnell Department ruled that we must live withen twenty five miles of Central Police Headquarters,BUT,we could live withen either state.
