The State Highway Patrol proudly welcomed 23 new troopers at a graduation held for the 149th Basic Highway Patrol School. The ceremony ended 12 weeks of demanding training preparing cadets for a rewarding career of service to the state of North Carolina.

McNeill Jr., the 27th Commander of the State Highway Patrol, provided words of guidance to the graduates as they embark on this new career.  
 
“Law enforcement is constantly evolving, and we must be engaged in an unwavering search for solutions to make people’s lives safer,” said Colonel McNeill.  “We must continue to learn so that we can provide the very best to the people we serve, while maintaining the highest of standards.”
