State Police trainees reenact real-world perils
For future troopers, worst-case scenarios
The first class of trainees in six years is currently undergoing scenario training, from domestic violence situations to traffic stops. The training, conducted at the State Police Academy in New Braintree, also involves classroom work, including comprehensive tests every three weeks on police procedure, criminal law and other subjects. Officials say the 75 training scenarios, up from only 4 previously, is necessary to create a better-prepared trooper.
