ND Highway Patrol Hires More Troopers

Posted: Updated:

You may notice more North Dakota Highway Patrol troopers out soon.

The recent legislative session granted the state's Highway Patrol agency 15 new positions to help with the increased work load.

If you're interested in keeping North Dakota highways safer, you may want to apply for a trooper position.

Once the hiring is complete, the highway patrol will have 213 full-time positions.

The majority of the new troopers will be going to western part of the state.

"In the Western part of the state with all the traffic fatalities, it seems to be pretty constant with them not only responding to the traffic fatalities, not only the workload, but the emotional effects of doing the death notifications and the investigations," says Lori Malafa, Administrative Services Commander.

The Highway Patrol will be accepting applications through July 2nd.
