Our crew was told they could only talk to State Police Superintendent Colonel Kevin Reeves.
This latest class was at the academy when hazing claims were brought up after several cadets were injured.

Reeves said, “We have a good academy. We have a good program and we’re moving forward and we’re proud of the personnel.”

When asked why we couldn’t talk to the graduates who just went through that academy, Col. Reeves explained they were highlighted during the graduation and then walked away from the interview.

The hazing claims are still under investigation.
