The troopers went through a 20-week training course to prepare for what they might encounter on the job.
Some say they are a little apprehensive, but are looking forward to hitting the road.
"It`s not as bad as what some people want to say it is. It`s still a great place with a lot of great people and I think my family will blend in well there and my kids will have a good time," said graduate David Kolness.
The Highway Patrol plans to hire and train more troopers across the state.
