ALBANY -- For the first time in more than three years, the New York State Police will welcome new troopers to the fold.

A total of 133 people graduated Tuesday from the New York State Police Academy today-the first graduation ceremony since June 9, 2009, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office.

Cuomo addressed the new state troopers at a ceremony in Albany. State Police have been without a new class because of budget cuts in recent years.

"The young men and women graduating today have answered the call to serve and protect the people of the state of New York," Cuomo said in a statement. "The members of the New York State police put their lives on the line every day to keep our state safe. I congratulate all the graduates and their families, and thank them for their dedication and service to New York.

Those receiving awards during the ceremony included: Matthew Volpe, 28, from Brockport, Monroe County, who won the "Superintendent's Firearms Proficiency Award" for averaging a perfect score during firearms training.

It was the 198th session of the New York State Police Academy, with all of the new troopers reporting to work on Monday.
