If you’ve ever thought about serving as a Mississippi Highway Patrol trooper, a new cadet class is set to start early next year and MHP has planned job fairs in search of candidates.  

The class is scheduled to begin in late January 2023, and will last approximately 18 weeks with training conducted at the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers’ Training Academy in Pearl.

The minimum qualifications for Cadet Class 67 are as follows: 

1. Must be 21 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED 

2. Must be a citizen of the United States and a resident of Mississippi at the time of appointment

3. Must have a valid driver’s license 

The Mississippi Highway Patrol will host job fairs at local Troop Sub-Stations on Sept. 24 between 9 a.m. -3 p.m. to discuss opportunities and answer questions about employment with the  Mississippi Highway Patrol.

Applications for Cadet Class 67 are currently available at Troop Sub-Stations across the state and at MHP  Headquarters, located at 1900 East Woodrow Wilson Avenue in Jackson. For additional information, interested candidates can email  mhprecruiting@dps.ms.gov

“Mississippians want to feel safe as they travel across the state, and we are dedicated to maintaining a  safe Mississippi,” said Col. Randy Ginn. “Class 67 will afford us the opportunity to add to the ranks  of not only the Highway Patrol, but to supplement the ranks of the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation as  well. We encourage men and women that are seeking a fulfilling career of service to apply and join the  largest law enforcement agency in Mississippi.” 

“Joining the Mississippi Highway Patrol is an excellent opportunity for anyone seeking to advance their  career in law enforcement,” said Commissioner Sean Tindell. “It is with great enthusiasm that we  welcome this next class of state troopers.”
