Governor Ted Kulongoski joined Oregon State Police (OSP) Superintendent Timothy McLain today in recognizing 23 Oregon State Police recruit troopers during their graduation from the Department's Advanced Recruit Training Academy at the Oregon Public Safety Academy.

OSP recruit troopers are required to receive 24 weeks of intensive training, including the 16-week Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) with other agency recruits and eight weeks of pre- and advanced-training unique to the requirements of the OSP. Upon graduation from the advanced training academy, this group of 20 men and 3 women recruit troopers will return to their assigned OSP worksites and continue training under the guidance of a field training trooper before being released on solo patrol. Of the graduating recruit troopers, eighteen are assigned to the Patrol Services Division and five to the Fish & Wildlife (F&W) Division.
A news release with more details was sent out earlier this date and is also available on the Oregon State Police website news release section.
