On Saturday, March 22, 2014, the Oregon State Police (OSP) recognized an important accomplishment for 19 Recruit Troopers during their graduation from the six week OSP Post-Academy training program. The graduation marked the completion of 26 weeks of academy-based training at the Oregon Public Safety Academy in Salem.
 
The 15 men and four women began their training July 20, 2013, in the OSP Pre-Academy with four weeks of training. The recruit troopers were split into two different DPSST Basic Police Training classes during which they completed the required 16-week training program. After Basic Police Training graduation, they reported to their assigned OSP offices for several weeks of field training under the close guidance and observation of their coach. Each recruit trooper returned February 9, 2014, to start their six weeks of Post-Academy training before their March 22nd graduation.
