Cadets from Mississippi Highway Patrol successfully complete training program

On May 23rd, a total of twenty-nine cadets for the Mississippi Highway Patrol (MHP) successfully graduated in Pearl, Mississippi.

Family and friends came together at the Clyde Muse Convention Center in Pearl to witness the graduation of their loved ones from MHP Cadet Class 68.

William Chenney, a graduate, shared that they endured a demanding 18-week training program at the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers Training Academy.

“The training process is quite demanding. We spent eighteen weeks in the academy, undergoing rigorous physical training and learning the foundational aspects of law enforcement, including legalities, driving, shooting, and other essential skills. Our training was comprehensive and well-structured,” he explained.

MHP’s training division equipped troopers with the necessary tools to prepare each cadet for their future service.

Sean Tindell, the commissioner of the Mississippi Department of Public Safety (DPS), expressed that lawmakers and city officials are collaborating to ensure that the graduates have a fulfilling journey ahead.

According to Tindell, they were successful in securing significant pay raises for state troopers during the most recent session. Additionally, they were able to secure an increase in benefits for all state law enforcement personnel.
