 Become a Texas State Trooper

Due to current health safety concerns,  the Department of Public Safety has suspended its testing for Trooper Trainee until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. The Department is still accepting applications for trooper trainee and continues to plan to hold a Trooper Trainee School in 2021. Start date of the A-2021 School is to be determined at a later date (TBD). Please continue to check our website regularly for updates. We are doing everything possible to keep you updated and appreciate your patience during these extremely challenging times. Please reach out to our recruiting team if you have any questions or concerns at DPS Recruiters.

Please keep in mind public health is our main priority, and we will accommodate each applicant once testing resumes. Applicants should also monitor our website at for any changes in testing or other important dates about the A-2021 Recruit School.
