Baton Rouge – Louisiana State Police announced the graduation of its 100th Cadet Class.  51 individuals completed their dedicated journey and became Louisiana State Troopers today.  The Louisiana State Police Training Academy hosted the graduation ceremony at the Baton Rouge Community College Magnolia Theatre of Performing Arts.

On December 5, 2021, 64 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, defensive tactics, fair and impartial policing, ethics in law enforcement and leadership in addition to a rigorous physical training regimen.  Surrounded by family, friends, and fellow troopers, 51 of those cadets attained 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.
