NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Highway Patrol has announced that it will soon be accepting applications for its second lateral trooper class.

THP officials say preferred applicants have graduated from a law enforcement training facility certified by the state Peace Officer Standards Training Commission.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens, have a high school diploma or equivalent and be able to pass a physical agility test. They must also undergo a background check, polygraph and not have committed a felony.

Officials say trooper cadets will be assigned to vacant positions across the state.
