OSWEGO TOWN, NY – Christopher Church and Cody Hogan, residents of the town of Oswego in the 130th Assembly District, are among the 226 new members of the State Police.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo congratulated them at the 202nd session graduation ceremony from the Basic School of the New York State Police Academy in Albany.
The new state troopers will report for duty beginning February 12 to posts throughout the state, Assemblyman Bob Oaks (R-C Macedon) said today (Feb. 10).
Both men will be assigned to Troop D in Oneida.
“Today’s graduating class of troopers is continuing the accomplished tradition of the New York State Police,” Governor Cuomo said. “I commend each of these men and women for their commitment to protecting our communities – they are a perfect example of what it means to dedicate yourself to serving others, and I wish them well as they work to keep our state safe for all New Yorkers.”
“I offer my most sincere congratulations to today’s class of State Police graduates,” Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul said. “These men and women are members of the family of New York who will undoubtedly perform their duties with excellence and integrity – and for that, we are and will long be thankful for their hard work and dedication.”
“After months of training, the 202nd Basic School joins the ranks of one of the finest police agencies in the world,” said New York State Police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico. “For nearly 100 years the State Police have served and protected the citizens of New York. Thank you for your dedication and determination over the past few months as you worked to become a New York State Trooper.”
The new troopers will report for field duty on February 12. For the following 10 weeks, the new troopers will be evaluated under a field-training program supervised by senior Field Training Officers.
