90 Graduate to Become Michigan Police Troopers


LANSING, Mich. (AP) - 90 recruits graduated to full-fledged state police troopers Friday. The original applying class was nearly 2,000.

The ceremony was held in Lansing. Graduates are in the second of two trooper schools funded this budget year under Governor Rick Snyder's public safety plan.

As of last year, the Michigan State Police was at its lowest staffing level since the late 1960s.

Snyder spoke during the afternoon ceremony. New troopers were sworn in by Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue, director of the state police.

The graduates will be assigned to posts across Michigan.
