• CHP seeks officer candidates during three-day application period 9/12-14

    The California Highway Patrol will accept applications in September from individuals interested in a career as a CHP officer. The CHP is looking to hire cadets from a pool of applicants to fill vacant officer positions throughout the state.

    Applications will only be accepted online during a three-day period beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday, September 12, and ending at 11:59 p.m. Saturday, September 14.  This brief application period marks the second time in three years the CHP has accepted applications. Those interested in applying, or seeking additional information, should visit www.chpcareers.com. 

    “Working for the Californian Highway Patrol is about making a commitment to public service and improving the wellbeing of our state,” said California State Transportation Agency Secretary Brian Kelly. “This is a tremendous opportunity to join an organization that makes California communities safer while providing for the greater good.”

    “The CHP is one of the nation’s largest law enforcement agencies,” said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. “This is your opportunity to serve among California’s finest while providing the highest level of safety, service, and security to the people of California.”

    “CHP is recruiting highly qualified men and women for the position of cadet,” added Farrow. “Broad based, inclusive recruitment efforts are underway to attract a workforce representative of the diverse communities we serve.”

    Minimum qualifications for candidates include: must be 20-35 years old, a U.S. citizen, have no felony convictions, and be a high school graduate. Each applicant will be required to complete the entire testing process including a written test, physical ability test, appraisal panel interview, background investigation, medical/vision evaluation and psychological evaluation.

    Applicants who tested after January 1 and passed the written exam will be eligible to waive the written examination for this testing cycle. Applicants who are eligible to waive must still apply during the three-day application period.

    An applicant study guide and practice test can be found online at www.chpcareers.com. Visit the CHP’s recruitment Facebook page at www.facebook.com/chp.recruiting.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
