    I'm now 5 years into the process of applying, testing, etc. At some point, I hope it will pay off. Keep the faith.
    NHP is my dream agency. But the thing that sucks is, you can only fail the BG twice in a lifetime. So if I fail again, I'm banned from ever applying with NHP again.

    • I have a question for anyone who may have the answer. Ive been in the process with DPS for a trooper position and just got my letter of denial for 36 months. I had gone all the way through the phase 1 and phase 2 back grounds. When asked they couldn't tell me why I was DQ'd which I understand but what could DQ me for 36 months?

        There's absolutely no way anyone here can answer that. None of us know your background. Only you know what "yes" boxes you checked on your PHS. Maybe it was employment history, credit, drug use, driving history etc. A 3 year DQ isn't too bad.

        I didn't know DPS gave out 36month DQs. Must of been major if it's a 3 year DQ. I only got 18months the first time around. This is going to be my second time at this.

    • If you made it to phase two for DPS... I would imagine something must have become an issue during your polygraph or medical. If you did either.. because those are the only two things that issues could arise from.

        How long do you think a termination from a job will affect me? Its been three years since I got terminated. I'm hoping that's eenoug time between me and the incident.

          I couldn’t know for sure. That would be up to the BI to weigh in everything in your background. If that was the “only” true issue, it may not alone be grounds for a DQ. But it’s definitely not a good look.

      • Any info for laterals ? Which division are they hiring for ?

        • Stay Frosty as I stated in our PM DPS isn’t hiring right now maybe next fiscal year.

                I've seen it posted for over a year now. They stopped posting on NEATS if that's what your're talking about. They post it elsewhere now.

              • It seems they just resumed hiring when I posted that it was taken down off neats but now they obviously resumed hiring I was more referring to a PM between stayfrosty and I guess the state isn’t hurting as bad as they initially thought

                  No worries, just glad they are actually hiring.

              • How many positions are they hiring for?

                  There are still plenty of vacancies across the state, but I don't know the exact number. Academy sizes vary based on the number of applicants for each round.

                  Reno is still hurting, but the academy that just started up north will help out with that.
                  Rurals always need people.
                  Vegas can use more, though on paper Vegas is "close" to full. Vegas is still busy and could use more troops, but it comes down to available position numbers through HR.

                  I'm sure some troopers are going to be retiring soon as well. So that'll open up a few positions.

              • smokeybear83 and Blue_Stone thank you for the insight I really appreciate it. I won't be applying until early next year so now I know where to focus my efforts

                  • Anyone in the process? Or anyone know of academy dates?

                    I only heard that the next NHP Class won't be until next year and P&P will be in September or there about.

                      Not sure about specific dates but I think it’s back to 4 per year. 2 in Vegas and 2 in Carson.

                      There are no separate academies for NHP and P&P. In the past it was a combined basic academy and then separate specifics depending on which division you were going to. It has been since been combined to a single, longer academy which incorporates specifics for both regardless of your division destination.

                      I tried to contact the recruiters but they haven't replied. But, when I went to the testing in early March, they only had 18 spots for PNP and no NHP for Vegas. For NHP, they are only hiring for Northern Areas and won't have an academy until next year.

                      So if that has now changed to have 4 academies a year, that's awesome! Maybe starting next year unless they just added more now.

                      I don't understand why they say that because NHP is hurting for staffing everywhere. There are plenty of Vegas spots they can fill, though there are more in northern Nevada and in rural areas.

                      I'll try to get some better info for you and let you know. Are you in Vegas/looking for a Vegas spot? PM me your info and I can see what I can do.

                  • Anyone else in the process? I turned in my BG packet a couple of days ago.
