60 Cadets currently receiving training as members of Cadet Class 112

SPRINGFIELD - Illinois State Police (ISP) Director Larry G. Trent, on behalf of Governor Rod R. Blagojevich, today announced the graduation of Cadet Class 111. These 48 new Troopers join the additional 166 Troopers who have graduated from the Illinois State Police Academy under Governor Blagojevich’s administration.

"The addition of these new Troopers is evidence of Governor Blagojevich's continued commitment to public safety in Illinois," said Director Trent. "After they complete field training, they will have the skills and knowledge necessary to perform their duties with the ISP’s motto of Integrity, Service, and Pride."

During an intensive 26-week training period, cadets undergo a regimen of physical and classroom instruction, which includes training in Terrorism Awareness, Domestic Violence, Critical Incident Response, Firearms Training, First Responder Certification, Illinois Vehicle Code, Criminal Law, Motor Carrier Safety, Emergency Pursuit Driving, Juvenile Law, Police Response to Mental Illness, and more.

Cadet Class 111 began training on January 8, 2006, and is the second class to attend the ISP Academy in Fiscal Year 2006. In addition, 60 cadets reported to the Academy on June 4, 2006, as members of Cadet Class 112.

The new officers have been assigned to the following areas of the state and will immediately begin their patrol duties, joining veteran Troopers in the effort to safeguard our state:

District Chicago 15 officers
District 12, Effingham   6 officers
District 5, Joliet   3 officers
District 6, Pontiac   3 officers
District 8, Metamora   3 officers
District 10, Pesotum   3 officers
District 20, Pittsfield   3 officers
District 7, Moline   2 officers
District 14, Macomb   2 officers
District 16, Pecatonica   2 officers
District 18, Litchfield   2 officers
District 21, Ashkum   2 officers
District 2, Elgin   1 officer
District 22, Ullin   1 officer

Director Trent also announced that 55 applicants have been invited to report to the ISP Academy on August 6, 2006, to begin training as members of Cadet Class 113. Each individual received certification by the Illinois State Police Merit Board to attend the intensive 26-week training period.

In June 2005, the ISP Merit Board implemented a new rule which allows an applicant’s education to be considered acceptable if they have either an Associate’s Degree or equivalent, and three years of continuous full-time service as a police officer with the same police agency or three years active military duty. The addition of military service as an option of work experience provides an opportunity for many veterans to join the State Police and begin a career in law enforcement.
