Swearing In
Oregon State Police Superintendent Timothy McLain swore in eleven new recruit troopers Monday morning as they start 24-weeks of training to launch their careers with the Oregon State Police (OSP). These new recruit troopers were hired as part of the Department's aggressive recruiting effort to find men and women interesting in this exciting law enforcement career opportunity. Upon successfully completing training, these OSP recruit troopers are scheduled for Patrol Services Division assignments at OSP offices in Portland (4), Salem (2), Bend (2), Springfield (1), Coos Bay (1), and Albany (1).

On March 3, 2008 the 9 men and 2 women recruits were sworn in before their family and friends at the Oregon Public Safety Academy Hall of Heroes in Salem. Many family members accepted Superintendent McLain’s offer to place the OSP recruit’s badge on their training uniform. The recruits will now receive 24 weeks of intensive training, including the 16-week Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) training with other agency recruits and eight weeks of pre- and advanced-DPSST training unique to the requirements of Oregon State Police.
