Louisiana State Police just inducted 46 new troopers, and six of them are coming to Troop D, based in Lake Charles.
During a 22-week journey to becoming a trooper, cadets received training in subjects like crash investigation, emergency vehicle operations, impaired driving detection, traffic incident management, and leadership, all while following a rigorous fitness regimen. Anderson said the Louisiana State Police are more than excited to have the new additions.
Troop D, six new Troopers out of the 46 that just graduated, two happen to be women, we welcome all of them and look forward to having them patrol the streets of Southwest Louisiana, said Sgt. James Anderson.
The six new troopers will start a 10-week field training program while supervised by a senior Louisiana State Trooper.
