(WICHITA, Kan.) — The Kansas Highway Patrol says it will be able to train new troopers this year, thanks to a grant.
Because of the state's money trouble, the last recruiting class graduated in August of last year. The last class before that was in December of 2008.
A release from the Highway Patrol says the new troopers will come at a welcome time and will help provide law enforcement coverage throughout the state.
Candidates for the job go through a written exam, physical agility test, polygraph exam, background check, interview, physical and psychiatric tests. Recruits will go through 22 weeks of training starting in January.
