The Montana Highway Patrol commissioned nine new members on Thursday, from their 67th Advanced Academy. The patrolmen who graduated will be heading to numerous locations around Montana. Chief Deputy Attorney General Jon Bennion addressed the graduates at the ceremony, which was at the Delta Marriott Hotel in Helena. Bennion reminded the graduates of how integral good character and commitment are when serving the public. “The importance of the work that lies ahead of you cannot be overstated. So, set your direction with a positive attitude and strong spirit. Remember that each of you is now a person of influence simply by virtue of the badge on your chest and the trust the public will place in you. Montana’s law enforcement professionals are her true heroes,” Bennion said.
