From Massachusetts State Police:
2019 Student Trooper Program
The American Legion, Department of Massachusetts, Inc. sponsors a "Student Trooper Program" in cooperation with the Massachusetts State Police Academy every year.
The program is open to male and female high school students 15 - 17 years of age in good scholastic standing. They must be of good moral character and present a well-groomed appearance with hair neatly trimmed (males must be clean shaven).
Due to the rigorous training and stress involved in a paramilitary-type academy, those requiring special diets or having special physical needs cannot be accepted. The "Student Trooper Program "is open to all, regardless of race, color, religion, sex or nationality.
For more information, including the application, health statement, and medical questionnaire, go to https://www.mass.gov/service-details/student-trooper-program
Applications must be received before May 3, 2019.
