      I would say the process can take anywhere from 6-7 months, depending on the need of the department. I tested in May and I am currently in backgrounds, wrapping up my 1st month. I am currently an out of state candidate, so I'm not too sure if that makes a difference or not.

        It took about 3 months roughly to hear back from my initial application. After my PAT exam, it was pretty steady from there as far as being scheduled for Oral interview and receiving your PHS. The delay was being assigned an investigator. PS; I’m applying for Trooper 1 South Nevada, not P&P.

      It will be a short process to nowhere if you continue to spell Highway Patrol like that lol

        Yeah DPS waived the written. Take the PAT and pass, move onto Oral Boards and pass move straight into backgrounds. I think they waived the written because they were losing so many people because of it. Damn happy they did. Going to try and see if i can convince the wife to move back to Vegas, if so i'll put in an app for P&P again. Tested in 2016 and missed the passing score by 3 questions. My sister is currently in backgrounds for P&P. Been in for about a week now.

          Okay, yes I missed it by 3 points as well. It was a tough test.

            Yeah it's definitely a tough test. Which is why the passing score was 65. Good luck!

                it's $50,508 starting and you can expect approx 22% of that to go just to the PERS deduction. They top out at $86,109 for level 2 DPS officer but keep in mind when your pay goes so does the $ amount of that deduction.

                  hmm interesting. right now i get about 30% of taxes out of my check 22% of that is fed tax, 29.65% to be exact. So does that mean i would be potentially getting 52% taken out of every check?

                  you must be claiming single and zero on your paychecks to have that high of a tax rate ( at least if you live in NV) . NV DPS is percentage based last I checked and I'm not sure if that estimated 22% is pretax or not. I would think it is but you'd be best to confirm with someone on the job. There was a couple guys in my written test that worked for NVDOC and they said PERS is 24%. Plus you have to remember that being enrolled in PERS you don't pay in social security and medicare is calculated at something like 1%. LE pay is very different that your typical 9-5 desk job

                  Sincity, it works like this. DPS starts at around $25ish an hour. $25 hr x 80 hours = 2000 Not sure if PERS deduction increased but last I saw it was 21.75. So 2000 x .2175 = $435. You will then be hit with federal taxes. Let's say that is 15%. Again multiply that by your $2000 gross. 2000 x 15 = $300. Now add $435 for PERS plus $300 for taxes and thats $735 from your check. This bi-weekly twice a month. If you choose a health care plan that will be deducted from only one check a month as well. Welcome to working for the state...
