Wisconsin State Patrol to train 50 new recruits

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- 50 new Wisconsin State Patrol recruits just began a rigorous twenty - six week training program at the State Patrol Academy in Fort McCoy, Wisconsin. They will graduate as either Troopers or Inspectors when they finish their training in March of 2018.

“State Patrol cadets receive extensive training related to traffic stops, pursuits, emergency vehicle operations, and firearms proficiency,” said Captain Paul Matl, the  Commander of the Wisconsin State Patrol Academy. “They also receive training in communication skills, ethics, crash investigations, criminal and traffic law, as well as emergency lifesaving techniques. This comprehensive, academic and hands-on training prepares them for law enforcement careers while operating out of one of the seven State Patrol posts around Wisconsin.”

The Wisconsin State Patrol has existed since 1939. According to their website, “The State Patrol has been dedicated to promoting highway safety and enhancing the quality of life for all Wisconsin citizens and visitors by providing professional, competent and compassionate law enforcement services.”

Troopers generally patrol highways enforcing traffic safety laws and assisting stranded motorists. Inspectors have similar roles, but receive additional training related to state and federal motor carrier laws involving the mechanical components and drivers of large trucks, buses and other commercial motor vehicles.
