    R.I. State Police looking for recruits

    The Rhode Island State Police are launching a drive to find new recruits for next year’s training academy. The department said it is accepting applications through May 31 for the academy, which is tentatively scheduled for September 2015. Captain Ernest Quarry said they are looking for about 40 candidates. State Police received more than 1,600 applications for the 2013 class. Quarry said those who apply will have to complete a written exam and physical fitness test, among other requirements. He calls it a ‘‘stringent and extensive recruitment process.’’
