JOB ALERT: Idaho State Police Puts Out Help Wanted Sign To Hire 20 Troopers

Posted: Updated:

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Normal attrition rates in the ranks of Idaho's state police have the agency putting out a "Help Wanted" call.
    
The Idaho State Police said Monday it's taking applications for 20 troopers positions through July 22, with training to begin in January.
    
ISP Colonel Ralph Powell says only those with the highest moral standards need apply.
    
Applicants must be U.S. citizens, have a high school diploma or GED and pass an online examination, before a battery of additional tests including physical fitness.
    
There are also background checks, work history verification and psychological and medical scrutiny.
    
Training takes about nine months to complete, but the starting pay is relatively robust, at $17.67 per hour and possibly higher if the candidate is a current police officer with at least three years of experience.
