Colonel Robert Evanchick, who is the commissioner of the PSP has said that the training and education they have received will serve as the foundation of their careers.

“You will be scrutinized for every decision you make and sometimes for the decisions other law enforcement officers make,” said Colonel Evanchick to the 64 graduates. “You need to be true to yourself, our Call of Honor, and do the right thing, even when doing the right thing may be the most difficult decision you will ever make.”

The ceremony took place at the LCBC Campus in Manheim. The 64 troopers will report to their stations on Sept. 6
