A new group of 13 South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers have graduated and are set to begin duty.
The recruits graduated during a ceremony Friday at the Capitol Rotunda in Pierre. The Highway Patrol says several of the troopers are set to begin work as early as Saturday.
The troopers completed basic law enforcement training, followed by the South Dakota Highway Patrol Recruit Academy and field training.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Gov. Dennis Daugaard told the troopers and their family members that law enforcement officers are the foundation for a free society.
