If you or someone you know served in the Armed Forces, then Maryland State Police "wants you." 

The Maryland State Police will support the Governor's 'Hire A Veteran Month' by recruiting military veterans. 

“We can never repay our military veterans for their service and sacrifice on behalf of our nation,” Colonel Pallozzi said.  “We are committed to recruiting these outstanding men and women by challenging them to continue their public service on behalf of the people of our state.  We are also dedicated to supporting those within our ranks who continue to serve in the military by assisting them and their families while they are deployed and during their transitions to and from military service.”

The Maryland State Police military liaison program helps recruit military personnel from around the county and has become a model for other law enforcement agencies and organizations. 

According to State Police, there are 419 employed veterans of the Maryland State Police. Of those, 57 are current members of a military Reserve or National Guard unit.
