Washington State Patrol establishes Veteran Preference website

Saturday, October 24, 2015

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) has established a link to a website to identify individuals who applied to be a trooper and believe they were not given their veteran’s preference points on prior applicant tests. Washington State law requires state agencies to give veterans’ preference points to honorably discharged veterans during the hiring process.

A lawsuit has been brought against the State of Washington and the WSP alleging the state agency failed to provide required veterans’ preference points on tests given to trooper applicants. In order to identify persons who may be claimants potentially entitled to compensation in connection with this litigation, the WSP and the Plaintiffs in the case are seeking information from anyone who is an honorably discharged veteran, applied to work as a trooper with the WSP between January 1, 1994, and January 1, 2013, and passed the tests given by the patrol but were not hired.
