  5.  Trooper Schools. The Senate included the conduct of trooper schools for FY 2024-25 to graduate approximately 120 troopers to replace those expected to be lost due to attrition. Revenue used for the schools would come from attrition savings and require no additional funding for FY 2024-25. Since the annual cost of a new trooper, including salary, benefits, various gear and equipment is approximately $190,000, the internal savings needed from attrition to fund 120 troopers would be a minimum as $22.8 million in revenue, primarily from GF/GP.
