HUMBOLDT – The California Highway Patrol (CHP) will accept applications in September from individuals interested in a career as a CHP officer.

 

“This is an opportunity to serve alongside some of California’s finest who provide the highest level of safety, service and security throughout the state,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “A career with a law enforcement agency like the CHP offers unlimited opportunities for someone who is looking for a challenge.”

 

Applications will be accepted online only during a three-day period from Thursday, September 12 through Saturday, September 14. This brief application period marks the second time in three years that the CHP has accepted applications.

“Officers are needed throughout California,” added Commissioner Farrow. “Through this process, we are determined to find qualified men and women from diverse backgrounds who are committed to carrying out the CHP’s mission and making a difference in their communities."

 

To be considered, candidates must be 20-35 years old, a U.S. citizen, have no felony convictions, and be a high school graduate. Each applicant will be required to complete a selection process including a written test, physical ability test, appraisal panel interview, background investigation, medical/vision evaluation and psychological evaluation.
