The Missouri Highway Patrol will graduate 26 more troopers into the field this week as part of its 95th Recruiting Class. A ceremony is set for Friday morning at the Law Enforcement Academy in Jefferson City. The group reported for training April 2nd. After graduation, they will report for duty to their assigned troops October 9th and undergo a 3-month field training with an assigned officer. Patrol Captain Tim Hull tells KZIM KSIM these men and women will fill a void out on the streets. This group includes Justin Brooks from Bloomfield and the only woman, Marylyn Dickens of Campbell. Hull says the next full class will report to the academy in January. You can learn more about the career as a trooper at www-dot-motrooper-dot-com.
