Individuals applying for the position of state trooper must be at least 21 years old, a U.S. citizen and have a high school diploma or equivalent. The application process was changed this year to incorporate an interview process that tests applicants' knowledge, skills, abilities and competencies.
Selected applicants will be required to pass a physical agility test. There are currently 882 authorized commissioned officer positions within the THP.
