The school year is wrapping up for many people, but it’s just beginning for dozens prospective Michigan State Police troopers.
Sunday, May 12, 80 men and women from across the state began the 125th Trooper Recruit School. For the next 21 weeks, MSP members and academy staff will train the recruits in firearms, water safety, defensive tactics, patrol techniques, report writing, ethics, first aid, criminal law, crime scene processing and precision driving. Recruits who successfully complete the training will graduate October 4.
Michigan State Police selected recruits from more than 3,000 potential candidates.
