The State Highway Patrol proudly welcomed 18 new troopers at a graduation ceremony held for the 162 nd Basic Highway Patrol School. The ceremony celebrated these new law enforcement officers on their accomplishment and decision to embark on a rewarding career of service to the state of North Carolina.

Colonel Freddy L. Johnson, Jr., commander of the State Highway Patrol, provided words of encouragement to the new troopers and their families.

“This has been a challenging journey for each of you and your families as you sought out this worthy goal of service to the people of this state,” said Johnson. “As of today, the rewards will be daily as you know that your mission of saving lives is being accomplished with every educational and enforcement opportunity that you face.”
