virginia state policeThe Commonwealth will graduate its 128th generation of Virginia State Troopers at a ceremony on Friday.

The new troopers, all of whom entered the Academy as pre-certified law enforcement officers, have received more than 300 hours of classroom and field instruction in nearly 50 different subjects, including defensive tactics, crime scene investigation, ethics and leadership, police professionalism, firearms, judicial procedures, officer survival and crisis management.

The members of the 128th Basic Session began their eight weeks of academic, physical and practical training at the Academy on April 26, 2018.

The soon-to-be graduates of the 128th Basic Session are from every corner of the Commonwealth, including King George County, Fredericksburg, Chesapeake, Rappahannock, Lynchburg, Danville and Wise County.

Upon graduation, the new troopers will report to their individual duty assignments across Virginia beginning July 5, for their final phase of training. Each trooper will spend an additional six weeks paired up with a Field Training Officer learning his or her new patrol area.
