ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state’s parks are getting 35 new police officers.

The new graduates of the Basic School of the State Parks Police Academy will begin a 10-week field training program at regional commands around the state. Patrol work comes later.

The 35 recruits completed a six-month residential training program at the State Park Police Academy in Rensselaerville, outside of Albany. Gov. Andrew Cuomo congratulated the new class Thursday.

The state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation operates 180 parks and 35 state historic sites.
