About New Jersey State Troopers Test

99 years ago, the NJST was established on 29th March, 1921 as a state police force for the state of New Jersey. The New Jersey state troopers (NJST) strive to excel in their duties with their motto of “HONOR, DUTY & FIDELITY”. The department is staffed with 3811 employees (as of 2014), which are lead by the agency chief, Colonel Patrick J. Callahan. It has 2585 troopers and 1226 civilians in 4 groups of troops (southern New Jersey, Northern New Jersey, Central New Jersey and New Jersey Turnpike). Designated by troop services, NJSP is responsible for:

● General police services
● General highway traffic enforcement
● Statewide investigation and intelligence services
● Support to local law enforcement efforts

Schwarzkopf was the first superintendent of NJSP, who heavily influenced the troopers. He started a training program for selecting new troopers which resulted in a positive outcome. Out of 116 men who started training, 81 of them completed the training program successfully. The training program took place on the same ground as the present state police academy (Sea Girt, New Jersey).
