The Kansas Highway Patrol is beginning the process of hiring a new class of recruit troopers.
According to the agency, the application phase opened on Friday for KHP Class #54, who will begin training at the Academy in Salina in July 2014. The agency will train another two classes next year, rather than the one per year that has recently been trained.
Applications are being accepted now through December 1st, 2013. 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 Salina for 22 weeks of training.
