19 recruits have started on the rigorous road to becoming Nebraska State Troopers.
The recruits will train for the next six months at the N-S-P Training Academy.
The recruits come from five states, including several different communities across Nebraska.
Once the recruits graduate as state troopers, they continue with an additional 800 hours of field training, paired with veteran troopers throughout Nebraska.
