troop + -er < French troupe.

Sense of cavalry soldier attested 1640, mounted policeman 1858 (Australia), state policeman 1911 (US). The sense of "one who endures adversity" comes from English trouper (member of an acting troupe), 1959, but through assimilation with the sense of "soldier" has come to be usually spelled "trooper".
