Patrol Begins Hiring Process for Class #55

Class will begin career in July 2015

The Kansas Highway Patrol is excited to announce that we are going to be hiring a new class of recruit troopers, who will begin their careers with the Patrol next July. This will be the 55th KHP recruit class, and marks the Patrol’s effort to increase manpower on the highways in Kansas, as well as provide assistance to some local agencies whom rely on the Patrol’s partnership.

“The Kansas Highway Patrol is built on history and a sense of tradition that has carried on from one generation to the next. We are looking for the next generation of men and women who want to make a difference,” said Lieutenant Amy Ayers, KHP Recruiter. “We want to help you become our next Kansas State Trooper. If you are interested or have any questions, we’d love to talk to you. Give us a call 785-296-8367 or email KSstatetrooper@khp.ks.gov.” 

Applications are being accepted now through December 1, 2014.  Applicants will go through an extensive hiring process, which will include a written examination, physical agility test, polygraph exam, background investigation, interview, physical examination, and psychiatric test. Upon successful completion of these steps, final offers of employment will be made. The recruits will report to the Training Academy in July 2015 to begin 23 weeks of training.

With retirements, promotions, and short-staffing in many areas of the state, these new troopers will come at a welcome time. The Patrol prides itself in the assistance we offer to local agencies.  Hiring additional troopers will not only enhance our ability to assist other agencies, but provide much needed law enforcement coverage throughout the state that Kansas residents and travelers through our state have come to rely on.
