American Legion to Offer Student Trooper Program

by Bobby Blair
April 9, 2014

The Charles F. Duford Post #47 American Legion is sponsoring the opportunity for two high school students to attend this year's American Legion Student Trooper Program in New Braintree. There will be two sessions of the program held at the State Police Academy -  July 7 to July 11th and July 21st to July 25th. The program is open to male and female students 15-17 years of age in good scholastic standing. You must be of good moral character and present a well-groomed appearance with hair neatly trimmed (males must be clean shaven). Due to the rigorous training and stress involved in a para-military type academy, those requiring special diets or having special physical needs cannot be accepted. The Student Trooper Program is open to all regardless of race, color, sex, religion, or national origin. Students must be Holliston residents regardless of where they attend school.

The sponsorship fee will be paid by the local American Legion Post. The Student Trooper Program is not a summer camp and is not designed for troubled teenagers. Reveille is at 5:30 AM and Lights Out is at 10:00 p.m. Veteran Massachusetts State Police Trainers will provide classroom and hands-on training in topics such as First Aid/CPR, Criminal Law, Officer Safety, Crime Scene Investigations, Safe Driving, Leadership, Internet Safety, Team Building, and Physical Fitness.

If accepted, it will be the applicant's responsibility to obtain a doctor's certification attesting to his or her fitness and to provide transportation to and from the academy located in New Braintree, MA. A parent or guardian must sign a release of liability for the Massachusetts State Police and the American Legion.

Applications are available from Holliston High School Resource Officer Byran Digiorgio and must be returned no later than Friday, April 25th. Local State Trooper Legion Chairman is Bobby Blair.
