Troopers Zachary Barden Price and Daniel Preston Tucker, both from Wayne County, have also been assigned to Johnston County.

Colonel Glenn M. McNeill Jr. told the 48 new troopers who graduated from the patrol school, “Never slacken in your devotion to serving this great state. Remember, you chose this career primarily to help others, reduce collisions and make the highways of North Carolina as safe as possible. As we send these men and women on their new journey, our entire agency shares in the excitement they have for wanting to serve the citizens of North Carolina.”
