The division is comprised of two of the department's largest sections, recruiting and training, in addition, Human Resources services for the more than 900 State Police employees.
The Arkansas State Police Recruiting Office collects the initial contact forms of all potential recruits and prepares the next generation of State Police Recruits who may enter the department's Training Academy. The training officers assigned to the division develop and teach both curriculum for new recruits as well as in-service training for incumbent Troopers.
The Arkansas State Police is comprised of two types of employees, commissioned law enforcement (troopers) and civilian personnel.
While approximately two-thirds of the employees are troopers, the department relies on approximately 300 full-time and part-time civilian employees to fill administrative and support positions.
If you are interested in applying for a civilian position within the Arkansas State Police, please check for job postings at our job posting website or email the Arkansas State Police Personnel Manager for further information.
