Wisconsin State Patrol welcomes recruit class

July 15, 2014

The 60th Recruit Class begins during the 75th anniversary of the Wisconsin State Patrol

The Wisconsin State Patrol welcomed 52 new recruits to the State Patrol Academy at Fort McCoy on Sunday, July 13, as they begin an intense 23-week training program that will culminate in their graduation as troopers or inspectors on December 19, 2014.

The cadets will train full time at the State Patrol Academy in areas such as firearms proficiency, defensive and arrest tactics, traffic stop contacts, emergency vehicle operations, and police pursuits. They also will receive training in communication skills, ethics, crash investigations, criminal and traffic law, as well as emergency lifesaving techniques. Their physical, academic and hands-on training will prepare them for law enforcement careers as either State Patrol troopers or inspectors in one of five regions around the state. Troopers generally patrol highways to enforce traffic safety and criminal laws while inspectors focus primarily on enforcement of motor carrier (large trucks, buses and other commercial motor vehicles) safety laws and regulations.

For more information, contact:
Lieutenant Frank Hefti, Wisconsin State Patrol Academy
(608) 269-2500, frank.hefti@dot.wi.gov
