  • Florida Highgway Patrol

    Hey everyone, Has anyone applied to the Florida Highway Patrol? If so what is the process like? I talked to a recruiter today and she was saying the process is kind of crazy for and out-of-state certified candidate. Any information would be appreciated.

    I was checking out the Fhp a few years ago and then found out that they don't give raises anymore. From my understanding what you are hired in at you stay at. I found that out at

    Just something to think about. Good luck.

        Not a trooper, but a LEO in FL. Troopers only get raises when the state leg. votes on it. Thanks, but no thanks.

        I'd rather be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

            pd821, let me ask you a question. Do you enjoy writing traffic citations and running from traffic crash to traffic crash? If so, FHP is for you. Thus the name - Florida HIGHWAY PATROL. If you want to get down and dirty with the rest of us and do ALL aspects of the job, you'd be better off going with a municipal or county agency.
            If it wasn't for STUPID PEOPLE I'd be unemployed.

              pd821..I am guessing by your locality in the US that you work for a local PD. Now as SWAT mentioned if u want to write just tickets. FHP is good, but again, if you enjoy the local/county level...there are severl really outstanding agencies in Florida to apply to and I know the process to transfer your certification is not that difficult. All you have to do is just fork some $$ over at first. In Maryland, I have a few trooper friends who use to be FHP and came to MD because of the $$ being better...just something to think about..or we can trade jobs and I can move out to Vegas

                That sums it up so perfectly, it brought a tear to my eye.

                I'm always amazed at the dumbfounded looks of people who tell me they want to be a state trooper, after I tell them that they won't be responding to the outrageous 911 calls they see on "COPS", as a trooper.

                      Hell, as far as I'm concerned I have NATIONwide jurisdiction.
