OLYMPIA -- The Washington State Patrol swore in 27 new troopers Wednesday, graduates of the 101st class from the agency's academy.

State Supreme Court Justice Mary Fairhurst administered the oath of office as Gov. Jay Inslee, Chief John Batiste and family members watching from the railings on two upper floors looked on.
