It’s been a whole month since the newest class of Troopers left the Academy and took to the roads.
On their graduation day – surrounded by friends, family, and Troopers alike – Washington State Patrol Chief John Batiste said, “This is a great day for you but more importantly it is a great day for the citizens of this great state; for you join the ranks of the finest law enforcement agency in the land. You’ve done very well in accomplishing this important goal in your career and in your life. You’re cut from a different cloth like the men and women behind me…you have the character and the moral qualities that it takes to be a Washington State Trooper. We welcome you to our family.”
