Protecting the lives, property, and constitutional rights of people in Idaho since 1919.
Lateral Transfers are Troopers we hire from other law enforcement agencies who have at least three years of current patrol experience. We open Lateral Trooper job announcements on an as needed basis. However, lateral transfers are always invited to apply under any Trooper job announcement and may be eligible for a higher starting pay rate. In order to be notified next time we announce for Troopers, please go to: Email Notification.

Perhaps you're already serving as a commissioned police officer for another agency. We value your skills and experience! If you think the Idaho State Police might be a good fit for you, we'd like to hear from you.
Some of our requirements are the same whether you are new to police work or a seasoned officer, but in other cases if you have law enforcement experience you can "fast track" through the hiring process and move ahead with your career much quicker. Check out the links below for more infomation.
If you hold an Idaho Peace Officer Standards & Training (POST) Patrol Certificate or the equivalent from another state, are currently employed by a law enforcement agency as a commissioned law enforcement officer and have three or more years of experience as a commissioned law enforcement officer, then you are eligible for our lateral transfer program.
