CSP: 3 cadets hospitalized after training
Three Colorado State Patrol cadets exhibited potentially troubling symptoms as they completed a January training exercise
By PoliceOne Staff
DENVER — Three Colorado State Patrol cadets needed medical attention following a January training exercise, it was reported Monday.
Marc Colin, attorney for the Association of Colorado State Patrol Professionals, told The Denver Channel the three men's conditions were related to their kidneys, resulted from "extreme physical exertion and dehydration," and that seven cadets, not three, sought medical care, though the CSP declined to confirm that number.
"If so many cadets experience medical issues as a result of training, it’s something much more serious than a minor issue," Colin said. "If I were the cadets, I would be insulted by that characterization."
When the cadets recover, 9 News reported, they will resume training, and the Academy will review the course and implement any necessary changes.
