State Patrol Begins 66th Basic Recruit Camp
JULY 5, 2022 (GRAND ISLAND, NEB.) — Nineteen recruits have started their journey to become Nebraska State Troopers. The recruits will train for the next six months at the NSP Training Academy to earn the title of Trooper.
“This is an important day for our agency, but it’s also a milestone day for these recruits,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “They’ve chosen a life of public service and are ready to begin training. That attitude will be a tremendous asset as our Training Academy troopers equip them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to make a difference across our state.”
The recruits come from five states, including several different communities across Nebraska.
Ethan Broker – Hayes Center Johnathon Lawrence - Ord
James Coon – Bird City, KS Zachary Matthews – Neola, IA

Nebraska State Patrol recruits undergo 22 weeks of training, featuring a rigorous academic program and hands-on scenarios to prepare them for a career as a trooper. Once the recruits graduate as troopers, they continue with an additional 800 hours of field training, paired with veteran troopers throughout Nebraska.
NSP’s next application process begins on Thursday, July 7. Camp 67 is scheduled to begin in January 2023. Interested applicants can get details at NebraskaTroopers.com.
