No Recruiting Class

Twenty-eight-year-old Sean Wilson has his sights set on being a State Trooper. But now, his pursuit to be a Nebraska State Trooper will be put on hold. That's because the State Patrol had to cancel its recruiting class for two reasons: a tight budget and the rising cost of fuel.

Over the course of the next year 17 positions will become available at NSP. Normally, some of those spaces could have been filled by new recruits. Wilson hopes that at some point he will be able to be a State Trooper. Wilson said, "I understand that things happen for a reason and with budget cuts you can't take away from people that are already employed with the State Patrol."
