The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will accept applications online next week from individuals interested in a career as a CHP officer. The CHP is looking to hire cadets from a pool of applicants to fill vacant officer positions throughout the state.
“The CHP is looking for men and women who represent the diverse communities that we serve to provide the highest level of safety, service, and security to the people of California,” stated CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “This is your opportunity to become a member of one of the greatest law enforcement agencies in the world.”
Applications will only be accepted online during a four-day period, beginning at 8 a.m. Monday, March 2 and ending at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 5, 2015.
Those interested in applying or seeking additional information should visit www.chpcareers.com.
“If you are looking for a career, not just a job, then we have a spot for you in our department,” added Commissioner Farrow. “We invite all interested members of our communities to apply during the four-day application period.”
To qualify, candidates must be 20-35 years old, a U.S. citizen with no felony convictions, and a high school graduate.
Each applicant will be required to complete the entire testing process, including a physical ability test, written test, background investigation, medical/vision evaluation, and psychological evaluation.
All components of the testing process, an applicant study guide, and a practice test can be found online at www.chpcareers.com.
