The Arizona Department of Public Safety is seeking to fill 20 lateral trooper positions, and is accepting applications from current AZ POST certified peace officers. Although troopers can be assigned anywhere in the state of Arizona, the Highway Patrol Division has identified specific positions in areas around the state that are designated a priority at this time. A list of those locations will be provided at a later date.
Interested peace officers who hold a current AZ POST certification may apply here.
To become an Arizona State Trooper, lateral applicants are required to successfully complete the following: standard physical fitness test, Qualifications Appraisal Board (QAB), written examination, firearms qualification, drug screen, background investigation and polygraph, and psychological and medical examinations. Once hired, lateral candidates are required to complete only the State Trooper Academy.
