Several theoretical models inspired by the idea of supersymmetry (SUSY) accommodate the possibility of Heavy Stable Charged Particles (HSCPs). The Phase II upgrade of the CMS-RPC system will allow the trigger and identification of this kind of particles exploiting the Time-of-Flight Technique with the improved time resolution that a new Data Acquisition System (DAQ) system will provide (∼2 ns). Moreover, new Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) detector chambers will be installed to extend the acceptance coverage up to |η|<2.4 with similar time resolution and better spatial resolution. We present a trigger strategy to detect HSCPs with the RPC detectors. Its performance is studied with Monte Carlo simulations and the expected results with the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) data are shown.
