Default I became a State Trooper yesterday.

Hey everyone,

I doubt anyone's noticed but I haven't posted on CT for quite a while because I've been busy at the state criminal justice academy becoming a State Trooper. I just wanted to share this with you all as I love being a part of the CT community and I can't wait to protect and serve you all out there on our state's highways.

I got hired 6 months ago after graduating from USC with a degree in broadcast journalism and it's been one heck of a ride ever since, but I'm finally finished!

Here's a picture of our basic class, I'm in the 4th row, 3rd from the right:



Here's me and my "little" brother at yesterday's graduation, he's a freshman at USC:



Thanks for being an awesome Gamecock community and I hope if we ever have to meet out there on the road, it's under good circumstances.

Congrats! Keep those idiots out there in check!

My dad is good friends with two of the top dogs of the SC State Troopers. Melvin and Mike (their last name escapes me right now, but they are twins).

If you just happen to pull over Tahj Boyd for doing 14 over, don't let him off with just a warning! lol.

I'm in Troop 1, on the roads of Lexington. There are a lot of traffic collisions there, so it's a tough place to work. I'm ready for it.

If I can recommend anything, know the DUI 'clues' cold. Not just the clues for the SFSTs either. Memorize the clues for car-in-motion and the clues for the pull-over phase as well as you know the clues for the SFSTs. Also, I know it might involve doing this on your time off, but find officers, deputies, and/or troopers who love to testify in trials and pick their brain for advice as much as you can—even go watch them in court. We've got the most demanding DUI law in the country, so it's especially important in South Carolina to be prepared to fight for a conviction by trial and not just a plea. Never let their feet (not even a toe) go off camera if you can help it, especially under your cruiser's brush guard. Finally, if something goes wrong with your video (i.e. a malfunction), make a habit of providing a Humble affidavit to the prosecutor early on and ask your supervisor or DUI prosecutor exactly what needs to go in them. Hopefully you won't have to write many though!

I'm really, really excited for you and I'm happy to see your kind of enthusiasm for the Patrol. You're going to be a great trooper and I wish you the absolute best.

(PM me if you have any questions!)

I got pulled over by a state trooper in Lexington...on 378. he asked me if I knew why he stopped me. I didn't know but had an idea. my headlight was out. I reached over to the other seat and said...oh...this one? he laughed as I showed him one I just bought. he just gave me a warning.

btw...congratulations. wish you well and be safe.

So seriously...is there a code word? So far I am going with "Do you know a guy named Kyle? in Troop 1 out of Lexington. Hear there are a lot of traffic collisions on that stretch."
