(SALEM) - The Oregon State Police will welcome 11 new recruit troopers hired to begin training on Monday. This recruit training class will be the first OSP Recruit School to train at the new Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training facility in Salem. "We welcome these new recruits at a time when our department enters into a new training phase using the new DPSST facility," said OSP Interim Superintendent Tim McLain. "The new facility will enhance the training we are able to provide to OSP recruits with not only what the facility provides but also having our recruits train side-by-side with our law enforcement partners from other agencies." Superintendent McLain will hold a swearing in ceremony on Thursday, January 11th, at 11:00 AM during the first week of training for the OSP recruits at Camp Rilea. Prior to reporting on February 5th for 16 weeks of training at the new DPSST facility in Salem, the OSP recruits will spend four weeks at Camp Rilea for OSP-specific training. Following the 16-week DPSST training, OSP recruits will receive four more weeks of OSP-provided training at the DPSST facility for a total of 24 weeks of training. The eleven recruits were hired to fill vacant trooper positions following a comprehensive process that included testing, physical examination and psychological evaluation, interviewing, and a thorough background investigation. The recruits will be assigned to the Patrol Services Division (9) and Fish & Wildlife Division (2) at the following locations: * Albany (1 – Patrol Services Division) * Burns (1 – Fish & Wildlife Division) * Government Camp (1 – Patrol Services Division) * Klamath Falls (1 – Patrol Services Division, 1 – Fish & Wildlife Division) * Portland (1 – Patrol Services Division) * Prineville (1 – Patrol Services Division) * The Dalles (2 – Patrol Services Division) * Tillamook (1 – Patrol Services Division) * Tualatin (1 – Patrol Services Division) Looking to the future, Superintendent McLain emphasized that the Oregon State Police are stepping up recruitment and testing opportunities for applicants interested in a career with the department.
