CHP celebrates 75th year
The California Highway Patrol will celebrate its 75th anniversary with a dedication and open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at its new location, 2063 Hopi Ave., in Meyers.
The public is invited to the ceremonies and tours, which will take place after the official opening by CHP Commissioner D.O. Helmick Jr.
Men and women between the ages of 20 to 35, who have considered becoming a California Highway Patrol officer are encouraged to act now. The CHP is recruiting and is looking for people who want to be part of one of the premier law enforcement agencies in the world. Training to become a CHP officer takes about six months at the CHP Academy in West Sacramento. Once accepted, cadets are employed by the department and earn approximately $3,000 a month during their training. The CHP has changed its testing schedule from year-around to once a year. As a result, there is a very specific period when applications will be accepted.
“It is very important for candidates to have their applications postmarked between Aug. 12 and Sept. 2. Any applications received before or after that time frame will not be accepted,” said Lt. Bob Jones, commander of the South Lake Tahoe CHP office.
Interested parties should contact the South Lake Tahoe CHP office at (530) 577-1001 and request an application packet. For more information on the recruiting process, eligibility, study guides and testing locations, visit the CHP Web site at http://www.chp.ca.gov/recruiting.
