New York State Police Superintendent Keith M. Corlett said the graduates “endured months of vigorous classwork and training.”

Altogether, 228 new troopers graduated statewide as part of the academy’s 208th graduation, which was held at the Empire State Plaza Convention Hall in Albany.

Troopers will report for field duty on July 31 and will spend the next 10 weeks being evaluated under a field-training program.
