JOB ALERT: The Washington State Patrol Is Hiring
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Trooper Tina Wallman, a twenty-five year veteran of the Washington State Patrol, recently returned as the agency's Eastern Washington Recruiter. She spent the last 19 years as a trooper in Eastern Washington and has been reassigned as the Eastside Recruiter to help the Washington State Patrol meet its growing need to hire qualified troopers.
The Washington State Patrol is actively recruiting and seeking qualified applicants for the position of trooper. There are currently 48 vacant trooper positions that the agency is attempting to fill. The agency's attrition rate for troopers has been increasing due to retirements and there is an urgent need to find qualified candidates who have what it takes to be a trooper with the Washington State Patrol.
Over the last eight months, 29 commissioned officers have retired from the Washington State Patrol and an additional 94 commissioned officers will be eligible to retire by the end of 2010. This future challenge makes it critical to consistently recruit new trooper cadet applicants to the agency.
Resuming regular trooper cadet testing in Eastern Washington is a huge relief for Eastern Washington applicants desiring to fill the agency's vacant positions. Applicants are now able to test closer to home and avoid the long commute to the Washington State Patrol Academy in Shelton for testing.
Trooper Wallman's extensive experience as a trooper with the Field Operations Bureau and a recruiter with the agency's Human Resource Division has allowed her to develop numerous partnerships in Eastern Washington communities. Her mission will be to conduct recruiting and testing throughout Eastern Washington for those wishing to join the Washington State Patrol.
The dates, locations, and RSVP information are available on the agency website http://www.wsp.wa.gov/employment/recruit.htm .
Information regarding the next two test offered in Eastern Washington by Appointment Only is:
|Dates:||September 22, 2010 & September 25, 2010|
|Location:||Washington State Patrol District Office
6403 West Rowand Rd.
Spokane, WA 99224
