Maryland State Police 148th Trooper Candidate Class graduated today. The 36 members of the class completed 27 weeks of residential police training academy – receiving instruction in criminal and traffic laws, emergency care, emergency driving, physical training and scenario-based training that includes de-escalation and conflict resolution.  After a brief leave, the new troopers will report to barracks across Maryland to begin eight weeks of practical instruction with field training troopers before they can patrol alone.
