VASSALBORO, Maine — The Maine State Police welcomed 11 new troopers to the force following a graduation ceremony Friday at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.

Earning Troop F assignments out of Houlton in Aroostook County were Andrew Levesque of Madawaska and Jacob Ferland of Lincoln.

Graduates Adam Schmidt of Sterling, Mass., has been assigned to Troop A in Alfred, Adam Gould of Hermon to Orono’s Troop E, and Justin Huntley of Virginia, assigned to Troop G in Portland.
