New trooper cadet class being formed

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Highway Patrol has opened applications for a new trooper training class.

Applications will be accepted online through Tuesday, and the new cadet class is scheduled to begin Feb. 1.

All applicants must apply online at http://agency.governmentjobs.com/tennessee .

The requirements include a minimum age of 21, U.S. citizenship and a high school diploma or equivalent. Two years of college or previous law enforcement experience is preferred. The patrol will not consider applicants who have felony convictions.

The applicants who are selected must pass the physical agility test prior to being admitted for an interview. The THP anticipates the agility test and interview appointments will begin Sept. 4.
