RALEIGH — The North Carolina Military Pipeline, initiated by Gov. Pat McCrory’s office, is a new initiative to transition service members out of the military and directly into positions with the Department of Public Safety (DPS).
DPS representatives are involved in recruitment and hiring events at military bases and National Guard regional readiness centers (armories), with a particular emphasis on correctional officer and state trooper candidates. Future plans include recruiting for probation officer positions as well.
At the hiring events, qualified service members may apply and interview for correctional officer positions. The hiring process is streamlined, and recommended candidates may receive conditional offers of employment that same day.
At three hiring events at military bases in six weeks, DPS has made more than 30 conditional offers of employment with additional offers pending completion of required testing.
Interested applicants for correctional officer and state trooper positions may visit www.ncdps.gov and click on “jobs” for more information.
