Why become a Virginia State Trooper? Why wear the blue and gray in today's public safety environment? Why endure 26 weeks of an academically demanding and physically arduous training at a live-in Academy? It takes a passion for justice, a desire to protect your community, and a commitment to serve and make a difference. But the best motivation can be heard from 122nd Class President Trooper I.J. Dallam during his graduation speech in November.
