Wisconsin State Patrol recruit class begins training


By - Oct 9th, 2017 10:55 am

A total of 50 Wisconsin State Patrol recruits have started a 26-week training program at the State Patrol Academy in Fort McCoy that will culminate in their graduation as Troopers or Inspectors on March 30, 2018.

“State Patrol cadets receive extensive training related to traffic stops, pursuits, emergency vehicle operations, and firearms proficiency,” according to Captain Paul Matl, 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.”

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.
