Montana Highway Patrol

Due to the current COVID-19 concerns and protocol, we are revising the Regional Testing process for the Trooper recruitment, which closes April 6, 2020.

At this time, plans are currently being discussed but have NOT yet been finalized. We anticipate having plans finalized no later than April 13, 2020; however, plans may rapidly change. Applicants successful in the initial screening will be informed of the new process.

Choose where you want to live and work in Montana!

Applicants who are successful in the selection process and offered employment to attend the Academy will be allowed to select duty station assignments (pending final approval from the Chief of the Patrol). These assignments will be assumed after successful completion of the Academy and Field Training Assignment.
