Governor Kathy Hochul congratulated the Troopers at a ceremony on Wednesday, March 23 at the Empire Plaza Convention Center in Albany.
The following is a list of new State Troopers from the Finger Lakes region:

“These men and women we welcome into the New York State Police today have worked and trained extremely hard for six months and have dedicated themselves to protecting the people of New York State,” said Hochul, according to a press release. “I commend these new Troopers for their commitment to public service and making our state a safer place for those who live, work and travel through New York. I wish them luck as they start their careers and continue the 105-year-long tradition of the New York State Police.”
