BLACKWOOD, NJ (CBS) – The New Jersey attorney general and commander of the state police are traveling across the Garden State looking for a few good men and women to serve in law enforcement.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa and State Police Superintendent Colonel Rick Fuentes were in Blackwood on the campus of Camden County College on Thursday, promoting the recruiting campaign for the next two classes of state troopers.

The governor has authorized the hiring of 225 troopers over the next year and Chiesa says they’re especially interested in people with experience.

“We recognize the valuable experience of laid-off police officers in New Jersey and military veterans. We encourage those groups to apply.”

Fuentes says the opportunities are great, “Homeland security, hometown security, traffic safety, homicide, cyber crimes. There really isn’t too much that you can find in the area of criminal science and criminal justice nowadays that we don’t cover.”
