“ISP is an exciting career choice for those interested in joining law enforcement and those already serving in the profession and looking for more freedom and benefits,” said ISP Captain Chris Weadick. “The freedom our troopers have to serve statewide, the training and equipment they get for a number of specialty positions, that’s exciting for those who want a lot of variety and to be hands-on with promotions and salary increases as they progress through their career.”

“From continued education, excellent health and retirement benefits, and options that go right down to where they and their families want to live, ISP troopers have a lot of freedom and opportunity not found elsewhere, and those benefits make a difference.” Said Weadick.

Applications for the position of ISP Trooper opened today and will be accepted through September. Those interested in learning more can go here.

“Of course, the greatest thing about working as a trooper with the Idaho State Police is absolutely the people you get to work with. No doubt, the work can be tough, but people here truly enjoy each other and know that they provide a service that’s essential for healthy, successful communities. The people of ISP are proud to serve in Idaho and sincerely grateful for the support they receive from community members here. At the end of the day, that makes a real difference.” said Weadick
