A Sharon resident becomes part of Massachusetts State Police history today.
Jonathan DeLuca is part of the largest Massachusetts State Police graduating class ever, a group that graduates at noon at Worcester's DCU Center, state police said in a press release.
The 208-member 80th Recruit Training Troop is the first class to graduate from the State Police Academy since 2006, state police said. Gov. Deval Patrick secured funding for this 21-week program, which included classroom study, physical training, defensive tactics, and real-world law enforcement scenarios. The classes started in October.
Patrick, Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray, Secretary of Public Safety and Security Mary Beth Heffernan, and State Police Superintendent Col. Marian McGovern will appoint the troopers.
