    If there are any FHP troopers on here that could PM me I would appreciate it. I have a few questions about the department as I am starting the hiring process.

    Thanks.

    Good luck to you. Is the pay still horrible?

    Still one of the worst pay in the nation, and with our new Tea party" governor gutting the state it will only get worse.

    RIght now they are already downgrading the retirement benefits even though the retirement system itself is fully sound and brings in twice the amount each year that it pays out. Of course the Gov is looking for a way to get it's hands on that money.

    I was filling out their application packet in 2003 and when I got to the pay scale portion I immediately stopped and shredded the application, it was that bad. I had options then but I understand with the current economy you pick up whatever you can get.
