The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) is actively recruiting across the state and you can attend a career fair tonight to learn more.

The event will assist potential applicants in processing and screening for the application process.

This comes as Governor Rick Scott pushes for a pay raise for state law enforcement officers. He's asking for a 5% raise which would come out to about $120 a month for thousands of state employees, however corrections officers are not included at this time.
?
The minimum qualifications to join the FHP are as follows:
· United States Citizen;
· High School graduate or equivalent;
· Minimum of 19 years old at time of application (no maximum age restriction);
· Valid driver license; and
