A pair of Lockport men are among the 226 to graduate Tuesday from Basic School of the New York State Police Academy in Albany. The new State Troopers will report for duty beginning Thursday to posts throughout the state.

Thomas B. Eggert — son of Lockport Police Dept. Chief Larry Eggert — and Salvatore A. Mattina will both report to field duty with Troop E in Canandaigua. For the next 10 weeks, they will be evaluated under a field-training program supervised by senior Field Training Officers.

Other Niagara County residents graduating the academy include Adam Mazgaj of Pendleton, Michael Federspiel of Lewiston, Vincent Mangione of Niagara Falls and Michael D. Flores of Niagara Falls.

"After months of training, the 202nd Basic School joins the ranks of one of the finest police agencies in the world," said New York State Police Superintendent Joseph A. D'Amico. "For nearly 100 years the State Police have served and protected the citizens of New York. Thank you for your dedication and determination over the past few months as you worked to become a New York State Trooper."

The graduation ceremony was held at the Empire State Plaza Convention Hall in Albany where the new Troopers marched into the convention center in a procession lead by the New York State Police Pipe and Drum band. The ceremony included a video presentation of the training received by all members of the 202nd Basic School Session.
