Kentucky State Police Will Be Extending Their Application Deadline

Posted: Mar 26, 2021 4:48 PM

Kentucky State Police will be extending the application deadline for their next academy class through April 9th, 2021. In January, KSP is changing protocol in effort to offer troopers a post assignment closer to home. Potential candidates will have the opportunity to pick three posts that they would prefer to be assigned to.After graduating, the new state troopers will be assigned to one of their top three selected posts.

Sergeant Michael Murriell, KSP Recruitment Branch Commander, thinks the new ‘Pick Three’ option will be a game changer for recruiting.

“In the past, a trooper who resided in Eastern Kentucky could potentially land at a Western Kentucky post upon graduation,” said Murriell. “It was definitely a concern of many recruits that we met with. The ability to provide assurance to our new recruits that they won’t have to pack up their families and relocate to the other end of the state will alleviate those concerns.”

All applications must be submitted to the KSP Recruitment Branch at 919 Versailles Road, Frankfort, KY 40601, KY 40601 by close of business on April 9th. The targeted start date for the class is October 2021.

The Recruitment Branch has established an email box that applicants can use to reach out to a recruiter. Inquiries should be submitted to
