“We just launched Camp 65 at the NSP Training Academy and they’re off to a great start,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “We often hear from our recruits that the extensive training offered at the NSP Training Academy is the main reason they chose to become a trooper. Recruits learn from expert instructors in a wide variety of disciplines during their time at the training academy. The training staff works tirelessly to prepare our recruits to serve the public in all corners of Nebraska.”

A career as a Nebraska State Trooper is full of opportunity, with the ability to serve in communities throughout the state and in dozens of different positions, such as criminal and drug investigations, K9 division, Carrier Enforcement, Air Wing, crisis negotiations, community service officer, SWAT, leadership positions, patrolling Nebraska’s roadways, and more.

The starting salary upon graduation for a Nebraska State Trooper is $49,379. Recruits earn $21 per hour during their time at the Training Academy. Troopers receive benefits including medical and life insurance, paid vacation, sick leave, and a great retirement program.

Applicants must be a United States citizen and at least 21 years of age by June 17, 2022, when they take the oath of office. Applicants must have a high school diploma or GED equivalence.
