Well I graduated from the 3 week VSP Pre-basic academy yesterday. Got sworn in by the commissioner and got my badge. It was the most challenging and most difficult 3 weeks of my life but the bonding and commradery between my fellow Troopers was a great feeling! The support we gave each other was what got most of us through it and I feel like I have 9 new brothers and a sister! I start the 20 week basic academy on Sunday but it will be a cake walk compared to what we just went through. My shins are still in a lot of pain but I will find a way to cope. Hope all is well back in the People's Republic of MA!

Congrats man! I just read that VSP pays better than I thought too, 47k after 3 years base I believe according to trooperpay.net . If I may ask, how many miles were they making you run a day about and at about what pace? I assume that's the hardest part.

Enjoy the rest of academy and I'd like a ride-along once you're off probation:) Will also help me for my second oral board next year.

There was 11 of us in pre-basic (state police only). We started with 15, a few dropped, one is pre-certified and is going right out to FTO. Today the basic academy starts with all the municipals so there should be somewhere in the 30-40 range of recruits.
