BATON ROUGE - State Police welcomed dozens of new troopers in graduation ceremonies Thursday for their most recent cadet class.

LSP honored 57 new troopers at ceremonies Thursday morning in Baton Rouge. The troopers will be stationed throughout the state, with four joining Troop A in the Baton Rouge area.

Their training isn't complete, though. Each will be paired with a veteran for 12 to 14 months of additional training on patrol.

This is the third cadet class to graduate since May 2014. Sgt. Nick Manale said State Police have been doing more cadet classes in the past few years to get more uniforms on the street.
