Montana Law Enforcement Academy graduates 60 new officers

HELENA – The Helena Civic Center celebrated the commissioning of 60 new officers from the Montana Law Enforcement Academy on Friday.

Montana Attorney General Tim Fox commended the class for choosing a profession that runs toward danger and not from it.

Many graduates and attendees wore green in honor of Trooper Wade Palmer, the Trooper shot in the line of duty outside of Missoula two weeks ago.

The attorney general also shared a message from Trooper Palmer’s wife, who said the graduates were joining a great law enforcement community.

Graduates were also recognized for their achievements in class.
