JUNE 19, 2020 (LINCOLN, NEB.)  — Fifteen new troopers are ready to hit the road across the state of Nebraska. The members of the 62nd Basic Recruit Class in Nebraska State Patrol history received their badges and took the oath of office today to officially join the ranks of NSP.

On June 19th, fifteen new troopers took the oath of office and received these badges.

“These new troopers desire to serve our state and make a difference,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Through the challenges they’ve already overcome as a team, the members of Camp 62 have displayed their determination to serve Nebraska with integrity and rebuild the trust in law enforcement that has been shaken in recent weeks.”

Governor Pete Ricketts, Attorney General Doug Peterson, and Colonel Bolduc provided remarks during today’s graduation ceremony, held in the rotunda of the Nebraska State Capitol. Secretary of State Bob Evnen administered the oath of office. Attendance at the ceremony was limited to comply with social distancing guidelines.

The class of Camp 62 completed 22 weeks of training at the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy in Grand Island. The training included extensive live-action scenarios as well as more than 1,000 hours of academic instruction. The new troopers will now continue their training during a field training process, while being paired with veteran troopers throughout the state.

“This class is a uniquely resilient camp,” said Colonel Bolduc. “They’ve been through COVID-19, they’ve been on lockdown, and they’ve persevered in several different circumstances. They’ve proven themselves and I think they’re going to serve Nebraska to a level that we haven’t ever seen before.”

Recruit Michael Guth, of Sidney, received the Superintendent’s Leadership Award, the O. H. Witt Academic Award, and the Captain Mark Williams Core Values Award. Recruit Madison Reynoldson, of Norfolk, was honored with the R. J. Buchholz Physical Fitness Award. Recruit Joshua Schwarz, of Lincoln, was presented the D. R. Shearer Marksmanship Award.

All fifteen new troopers are from Nebraska and most will be returning to serve in their previous city of residence. The graduates of Camp 62 are:
