Staffing Shortage Plagues Virginia State Police
July 18, 2011
The understaffed Virginia State Police is offering its troopers overtime shifts rather than giving them pay raises or hiring for the 227 authorized positions that remain unfilled.
The state agency has begun adding new troopers after canceling all academies in 2009 to save $250,000 a month. Only one academy was held in 2010.
The state police has 2,080 authorized sworn positions including special agents and supervisors.
