Kentucky State Police Post 1 in Mayfield and Post 2 in Madisonville will soon have new troopers after 42 cadets from across the Commonwealth graduated the academy Friday.
Joining Post 1 in Mayfield are Tony Cornwell of Paducah, John Holt of Nebo and Nathan Moore of Ludlow, Pennsylvania. The lone cadet assigned to Post 2 is Austin Cornett of Somerset.
The new troopers are part of KSP’s 96th cadet class. They reported for training on January 7th in a class that consisted of 75 cadets. Thirty-three resigned during the program.
The training included more than 1,000 hours of classroom and field study.
Each new trooper will be supervised by a training officer for eight weeks after reporting to their post assignments.
