  • DPS Duty station

    I read the following in the 2007 DPS annual report (pg. 44).
    "Applicants and the chain of command can sign a letter that guarantess that the applicant will be assigned to a particular duty station following graduation." Does anyone know if this has implemented? Is this only applied to less desirable stations? The recruiting section on the DPS website still says that assignments will be made based on the needs of the deparment.

    In Oklahoma you could interview with the Troop commander and sign a contract stating that when you graduate you would be placed at that Troop. Headquarters allowed a specific number of contracts to each of the Troops. But as you filled out the application it states several times (positions are at the discretion of the chief of patrol) and if you have a spouse you both have to sign that declaration. It is not a legal contract (Troop), just a letter of intent. It is all up to the chief. They just want to publicly make it clear that you could be placed anywhere in the state, because you did apply for the “STATE” Trooper position.

        yup. you fill out a dream sheet, put down the top 3 places( i think) you want to go, and why, i.e-own land have a house, etc. And they try to accomodate ya to the needs of the department.

        if you dont get where you want, after 1 year you can transfer.

          On a good note, everyone that graduate the last class got the region they wanted. Not the district, but the region.

            Interesting that they would publish that in their annual report if it has not been implemented.

              I believe that's only for people that want to be assigned to a hardship duty station.

                Designated Duty Stations

                For a little while they had a list of certain duty stations, that were traditionally hard to fill locations. They were guaranteeing locations off that list at the time. I'm not sure if they still are doing this or if this process has been tweaked.

                  Dps Duty Station

                  Could someone tell me if the city areas Dallas, Houston, San Antonio etc. are the harder areas to get ?. I am not sure but it would seem that West Texas would be the area where there would be shortages. Is this correct?.
                  THANKS

                      If you want to work the tollway in Dallas, they always have opening's there and I BET you can get that position easily.

                        Where are the busiest duty stations with Texas DPS located at and is it hard to get stationed at one of them and also, is the Dallas Tollway a busy duty station.

                          There's a reason for that.

                          What do you mean busiest? Like...most traffic, a lot of wrecks, DWIs, always in court, always on call, a lot of pursuits...you're going to have to be more specific.
