Baton Rouge – This morning, Louisiana State Police announced the graduation of its 99th Cadet Class, as 51 cadets completed their journey to becoming a Louisiana State Trooper.  The Louisiana State Police Training Academy and Istrouma Baptist Church in Baton Rouge hosted the graduation ceremonies.

On August 25, 2019, 61 cadets from across the state began their 23 week journey through the Louisiana State Police Training Academy.  Throughout the academy, cadets received training in various subjects including crash investigation, emergency vehicle operations, impaired driving detection, traffic incident management, and leadership in addition to a rigorous physical training regimen.  Surrounded by family, friends, and fellow Troopers, 51 of those cadets reached their goal this morning of receiving the distinguished badge of the Louisiana State Police.  Having successfully completed the LSP Training Academy, the newly graduated Troopers will deploy across the state, where they will participate in a 10-14 week field training program while supervised by a veteran Louisiana State Trooper.
