On Friday the Separtment of Safety celebrated the accomplishments of 44 cadets, who have graduated to become members of our Highway Patrol. Jim Camp and I had the pleasure of instructing these troopers on several occassions. We wish them nothing but the best.
Last week Jim and I had the pleasure of teaching at the Nashville Metro Academy. Like the THP class, they had some exceptional cadets. There was a medic, several EMT's, several military veterans and even a former Kentucky prosecutor. They graduate June 6th.
These cadets make tremendous sacrifices. They have to remove themselves from their normal lives to inundate themselves in the training regimen. That takes a lot of time and dedication from themselves and their families at home. Thanks to their willingness to sacrifice, we will have some devoted and dedicated officers on our roads.
