The Arizona Department of Public Safety is seeking to fill multiple lateral trooper positions, and is accepting applications from current AZ POST certified peace officers. Lateral officers can be assigned to any area within the State of Arizona. The Department will do its best to work with laterals to assign a lateral to one of their requested duty assignments however, staffing needs of the Department will be the deciding factor.
Interested peace officers who hold a current AZ POST certification may apply here.
To become an Arizona State Trooper, lateral applicants are required to pass a firearms qualification and Qualification Appraisal Board (QAB) in order to be placed on the 18-month eligibility list. Once on the eligibility list lateral officers will need to pass a polygraph examination, medical examination, psychological examination and must pass a physical fitness test within 90 days of initial testing date. If a lateral does not pass the firearms qualification or QAB portion of the testing process can retest at the next testing date.
