With several hundred family members, friends and veteran troopers watching, 27 cadets with the Washington State Patrol Academy’s 101st Trooper Basic Training Class became full-fledged troopers after graduating in the Capitol Rotunda Wednesday afternoon. They are shown here taking the oath of office from State Supreme Court Justice Mary Fairhurst. State Patrol Chief John Batiste and Governor Jay Inslee spoke during the ceremony.
