BATON ROUGE- This weekend, people who want to become state troopers will begin the rigorous process of becoming a member of the Louisiana State Police force.

Fifty future troopers will start training and will graduate in May. They are part of the first cadet class in six years.

Budget issues have kept the force from hosting training. Last year, lawmakers set aside money to host one because they were worried there weren't enough troopers patrolling state highways.

LSP is also accepting applications for the next academy, too.
