FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – The newest class of troopers has graduated from the Kentucky State Police Academy.

Diplomas were presented to 45 new troopers at ceremonies in Frankfort on Thursday. Their addition to the force brings the agency’s strength to a total of 880 troopers serving across Kentucky.

The new troopers are part of the agency’s 93rd cadet class. They reported for duty last May 24 in a class that consisted of 70 cadets.

KSP officials say the 23-week training period included more than 1,000 hours of classroom and field study. Subjects included constitutional law, juvenile and traffic law, use of force, weapons training, defensive tactics, high-speed vehicle pursuit, criminal investigation, evidence collection and hostage negotiations.
