WORCESTER (CBS) – A new crop of state troopers received their diplomas and badges Friday during graduation ceremonies at the DCU Center.

They were the 81st Recruit Training Troop to graduate from the Massachusetts State Police Academy.

The class of 174 troopers completed 23 weeks of training.

Trooper Luke Bonin was first in the class.  He is a former Army Ranger who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He said becoming a trooper is his dream.

“I’m very proud to be here and joining the ranks of such an elite of law enforcement professionals,” he said.

There was also a somber moment at Friday’s ceremony to remember troopers killed in the line of duty.
