FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police have added to their ranks with the graduation of 42 new troopers from the state police academy.

KSP officials say their addition to the force brings the agency’s strength to a total of 874 troopers serving the state.

The new troopers are part of the agency’s 96th cadet class. They reported for training this past January in a class that consisted of 75 cadets. Thirty-three resigned during the program.

The training includes more than 1,000 hours of classroom and field study in such subjects as constitutional law, juvenile and traffic law, use of force, weapons training, first aid, high speed vehicle pursuit, criminal investigation and computer literacy.
