It was a nice coincidence on Thursday morning. I was chatting with Doug Koester with Make a Wish Montana about an event they have coming up to help raise money for their great organization, and we were talking about all of the wishes that Make a Wish has granted for kids battling life-threatening and critical illnesses.

For many of those kids, being a member of the law enforcement community is their wish.

That may be the same wish for some of you out there across the great State of Montana. If you're looking for a stable job, good benefits, and the honor of wearing the uniform, the Montana Highway Patrol is hiring.

Trooper David Hankins dropped in to see us right after we wrapped up a conversation with Make a Wish Montana. He talked about the benefits of being part of the MHP and more.

Here are the details so you can apply for the job as well. According to a release from the Montana Department of Justice:

The Montana Highway Patrol is accepting applications for new Troopers.  Interested individuals should visit MHP’s website for details and apply by October 4.  For more information about the Trooper selection process and requirements, contact MHP at 1-(877) 8-PATROL toll-free or (406) 444-3259.
