Sgt. Alex Campbell and Trooper David DaCosta joined News 2’s Nickelle Smith on News 2 at 11 with more about joining the THP.

“We’re looking for people that have law enforcement experience prior to this; we’re also looking for people that are wanting to get into law enforcement,” Campbell said. “They have until Oct. 3 to apply for a class that starts in February.”

“Anyone who thinks, ‘This isn’t what I want to do. I want to get into law enforcement and make a difference,’ do it,” DaCosta added. “The first step is applying.”
