Indiana State Police Use Social Media to Recruit Troopers

October 18, 2011  | 

In anticipation of 100 trooper positions opening up, the Indiana State Police is turning to social media for its recruiting campaign.

The state police has been using Facebook and Twitter to give a behind-the-scenes look at the rigorous training that state police candidates must go through before they're sworn in.

The ISP is posting weekly updates of the current class of recruits that are undergoing 24 weeks of paramilitary training at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. About 20 percent of the current recruits will quit or flunk out because they can't keep up with the academic or physical demands.
