Replay of the LaSalle Academy vs. Bishop Hendricken high school football game. In what was probably the largest crowd to ever watch a football game at Hendricken High School, the inexperienced Bishop Hendricken Hawks took down their cross state rival, La Salle 21-7, in a much anticipated and highly spirited matchup in Warwick, RI. Game played September 15th, 2017.
It's been 15 years in the making and is more cost-effective than training firefighters at their individual hometown departments.
14 Firefighters from different Rhode Island communities went through the program, and now have graduated.
That's football, not soccer.
New class of recruits kicked off a 22 week training program Monday
Rhode Island State Police troopers describe their jobs as a way of life. They are proud of their professionalism, the depth of their capability and the integrity by which they uphold their oath 24 hours a day. From the RISP training academy, to community outreach, special units such as cyber-crime , canine and swat teams -- the modern State Trooper’s job has kept up with the tools and technology of 21st century crime-fighting. The RISP is held in high regard in part because they hold each other to a very high standard, with integrity, pride, and the mission to make a difference. http://www.risp.ri.gov/
