The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is in need of some good people. If you have ever even thought about being a Texas State Trooper this is the perfect opportunity to check it out (see the video below). The best part is that the Department of Public Safety is paying over $5,000 a month just for being in their training, and over $80k a year when you graduate.

So if you would like to be one of the few to protect Texans, the Lone Star State Highways and by-ways, and every inch of the Texas Stateline then get ready to attend a recruiting event targeting specifically currently certified Police Officers here in Texas to join the Texas Department of Public Safety in what will be a very short training academy.

This opportunity has only happened once before in the history of the Texas Department of Public Safety

This opportunity has only come up one other time in the history of the Texas Department of Public Safety. The actual goal according to Sergeant Marc Couch, Texas Department of Public Safety Education and Media Communications for the Northwest Region is to help decrease the number of vacancies in our agency across the Lone Star State.

Furthermore, the DPS is using this opportunity to bring attention to the future recruits that are not currently certified Police Officers, and remind them that they too are needed in the DPS. The pay is not bad for the State Troopers as seen in the DPS flyer below.

Trooper Couch is asking that we all help get the word out to help recruit current peace officers to join. Marc says "we want to promote the testing dates for our area law enforcement personnel interested in becoming a State Trooper."

The testing to become a Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper is being done at Wylie High School Bulldog Stadium on November 2nd, 2022, from 8 AM to 12 noon.
