  • Height Question for Troopers

    In the past years was there a height requirement for being a trooper? I know on the HP web site there is not one but is this something that they look at when you go to start the process? I wanna be a trooper one day I just feel like with me being on 5'4 that will be looked at....

    Thanks, Jo

    I'm 5'7", nothing was ever said to me, another guy out of my school was 5'0", no big deal.

            Back before most of us were born, the Patrol had a height requirement. However, there is none now. I am 5'4 and there are guys shorter than me. When people tell me I look too small to be a Trooper, I just laugh and say I'm also a smaller target if I am getting shot at.

              WTF!?!?!? Because Bruce Lee has killed soooo many people with his bare hands

                I guess that explains why the Vietnamese were so good at hiding during the Vietnam War, because they were so damn short! JK JK
