State Police to Hold Benchmark One Hundredth Cadet Class

State Police to Hold Benchmark One Hundredth Cadet Class

The Louisiana State Police has a rich history dating back to 1922 with the establishment of the Louisiana Highway Commission consisting of 16 motorcycle patrol officers. In 1936, separate divisions of statewide law enforcement were combined to form a modern, well equipped, and welltrained force known today as the Louisiana State Police. LSP will add to that history with the commencement of its 100th Cadet Academy Class.

Cadet Class 100 is anticipated to start in early October 2021 with a new applicant application deadline of May 24, 2021. Over the 23-week academy, cadets will receive advanced State Police training in the areas of firearm proficiency, tactical driving, deescalation techniques, advanced crash investigation, lawful use of force, implicit bias recognition, impaired driving detection, and effective communication and leadership skills to exemplify the LSP Core Values. Upon successful completion of the LSP Training Academy, the newly graduated Troopers will participate in a 10 to 16-week field training program before beginning their careers of dedication, protection, and service to the citizens of Louisiana.

If you are ready to become one of Louisiana’s Finest, NOW IS THE TIME!
