Kansas Highway PatrolApplications are being accepted now through June 29. 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 Jan. 3 to begin 22 weeks of training.
