“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, Jan. 3 through Saturday, Jan. 5.

“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, be U.S. citizens and high school graduates and have no felony convictions.
