CHP to Accept Online Applications for Officer Positions

The California Highway Patrol announced Wednesday that it will accept applications in January 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,” CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said. “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, Jan. 3 through Saturday, Jan. 5. This brief application period marks the first time in three years that the CHP has accepted applications.

“Officers are needed throughout California,” Farrow said. “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 to 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.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
