A total of thirty-nine new officers are graduating - two OSP recruit troopers, one Oregon Humane Society special agent, and 13 county and 23 city recruit officers. The two OSP recruit troopers will be reporting to their assignments at:
  • Salem Area Command – Recruit Brian Glaser, age 25 (Fish & Wildlife Division)
  • Tillamook Work Site – Recruit Jace Hall, age 24 (Patrol Services Division)

Starting January 2007, OSP recruit trooper training incorporated Department specific training and the 16-week DPSST training program with newly hired city and county officers at the Oregon Public Safety Academy. In addition to OSP specific training they receive before and after Basic Police Training, OSP recruit troopers' also go through a two to three month field training program with veteran OSP trooper.
The Basic Police Class No. 318 graduation ceremony marks the completion of 16 weeks of Basic Police Training for the 27th fully-integrated basic police class facilitated by DPSST. The graduation ceremony will take place at the Oregon Public Safety Academy, 4190 Aumsville Highway, in Salem. DPSST provides statutorily-required basic training to newly hired city police officers, county sheriff's deputies and OSP troopers.
