Connecticut State Police Troopers from Troop L in Litchfield and Troop A in Southbury attended the New England Regional Law Enforcement Education Association Cadet Academy last week. The Academy brings together approximately 500 participants for a week-long, in-residence, para-military ‘boot camp’ style training. It's a comprehensive experience in the field of law enforcement. State Police say this program has been designed to provide Cadets age 14 to 21 with a broad exposure to modern-day police work. Each level is a one-week program and takes the full week to complete.
