CHP seeks officer candidates during three-day application period
Sept. 3, 2013 — The California Highway Patrol will accept applications in September 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.
“Working for the Californian Highway Patrol is about making a commitment to public service and improving the wellbeing of our state,” said California State Transportation Agency Secretary Brian Kelly. “This is a tremendous opportunity to join an organization that makes California communities safer while providing for the greater good.”
“The CHP is one of the nation's largest law enforcement agencies,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “This is your opportunity to serve among California’s finest while providing the highest level of safety, service and security to the people of California.”
Applications will only be accepted online during a three-day period beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, and ending at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14. This brief application period marks the second time in three years the CHP has accepted applications. Those interested in applying or seeking additional information, should visit chpcareers.com.
“CHP is recruiting highly qualified men and women for the position of cadet,” said Farrow. “Broad-based, inclusive recruitment efforts are underway to attract a workforce representative of the diverse communities we serve.”
Minimum qualifications for candidates include: must be 20-35 years old, a U.S. citizen, have no felony convictions and a high school graduate. Each applicant will be required to complete the entire testing process including a written test, physical ability test, appraisal panel interview, background investigation, medical/vision evaluation and psychological evaluation.
Applicants who tested after Jan. 1, 2013 and passed the written exam will be eligible to waive the written examination for this testing cycle. Applicants who are eligible to waive must still apply during the three-day application period.
An applicant study guide and practice test can be found online at chpcareers.com. Be sure to visit the CHP’s recruitment Facebook page at facebook.com/chp.recruiting.
