Advice to Management
Listen to the Guys doing the job
I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Pennsylvania State Police.
Very long. Written test, oral interview, polygraph exam, physical test, psychological test, background investigation. This is the type of career that you have to really want to be a part of. This isn't a job that you take for a while thinking you'll try it and then move on to something else in 5 or 10 years. Being a Pennsylvania State Trooper is not just a job, it is a lifestyle.
