Basic 94 brings the total number of troopers in South Carolina to 780. The troopers began training in January. They graduated from the Criminal Justice Academy May 9 and continued on for specialized training from the patrol in all areas of law enforcement, including DUI detection, traffic laws, collision investigation and the use of firearms, as well as three weeks of field training. They have trained for 21 weeks and will begin another four to six weeks of field training upon graduation. “This class continues the outstanding tradition of protecting, serving and educating our residents and visitors of the Palmetto State,” said SCDPS Director Leroy Smith. “I remain grateful for the continued support of Gov. Haley and the General Assembly for funding us in a way that allows us to continue to place new troopers in our communities around the state.” See the July 3 edition of The Manning Times for more, including words from Welsh.
