CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire State Police are working to fill 10 new positions authorized under the recently passed state budget.
The new troopers are expected to be on the road early next year.
The budget provides for a total of 343 troopers.
The troopers' union had advocated for more positions during the legislative session.
The Eagle-Tribune reports state police are engaged in data analysis to determine how best to deploy the troopers. Maj. Russell Conte said the new troopers will go where they will best serve the agency.
