INSTITUTE, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Twenty-one cadets began 25 weeks of training at the West Virginia State Police Academy in Institute on Monday.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin administered the oath of office to the cadets.

State Police Spokesperson Michael Baylous tells WSAZ.com he is hopeful all of these cadets will make it through the training because there is a big need for troopers right now.

Baylous says a recent report showed they needed more staffing, so they can beef up programs like the crimes against children unit.

This is the 63rd cadet class to train at the academy.
