Four new troopers arrive at Troop C

Gray, LA - Louisiana State Police Troop C received four new Troopers Monday as they reported to Troop C for their orientation.

These four Troopers were among 57 cadets to have recently graduated The Louisiana State Police Training Academy as State Police Cadet Class #94, finishing a rigorous journey that began on August 30th of this year.
Cadets trained in areas such as crash investigation, emergency vehicle operations, DWI detection, traffic incident management, and leadership.

The new Troopers were each assigned a Field Training Officer (F.T.O.) to help guide them as they make the transition out in the field. Upon completion of the F.T.O. program they will receive their shift assignments and follow in the footsteps of the Troopers before them.

“I had the pleasure of attending the graduation of LSP Cadet Class 94. These Troopers have all distinguished themselves during their 16 week training academy. I am proud to welcome our four new Troopers to the Troop C family,” said Captain Darrin Naquin, Louisiana State Police Captain Troop C.

The new Troopers are:
- Brittany Caughlin of Vacherie, LA. Caughlin is a former Marine who worked as a Paramedic for Acadian Ambulance for the past three years before joining LSP.

- Garrett LeBoeuf of Bourg, LA. LeBoeuf worked as a paramedic supervisor for Acadian Ambulance for 13 years prior to joining LSP. LeBoeuf received the academic award for highest overall GPA during the academy.

- Justin Leonard of Gray, LA. Leonard worked for the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Department for 6 years prior to joining LSP. Leonard was awarded the Doug Millet Award as the Top Overall Cadet.

- Blake Poincon of Thibodaux, LA. Poincon earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Nicholls State University and worked in private industry prior to the academy. Poincon is the grandson of Ret. Troop C Sgt. Ernie Larose.
