In addition, Recruiters will be available to answer questions regarding the recruitment and selection process. The Recruitment Section will be sending letters of invitation to all perspective candidates inviting them to participate in the pre-test. Applicants who meet the criteria for the recruitment process, and who have submitted a Pre-Employment Application on or before the August 31 deadline, will be eligible for the September 29 Merit Board testing.
All eligible applicants will receive a letter from the Merit Board inviting them to the September 29 Merit Board testing at the Springfield Prairie Capital Convention Center. Applicants who are interested in a Trooper position MUST ATTEND AND PASS the ISP Merit Board Testing to continue in the selection process.
