This Black History Month, we celebrate Tpr. Cabria Shirley.

For Trooper Shirley, the most important part of celebrating BHM is remembering all the men and women who trailblazed the way for her.

Trooper Shirley has worked at the MSP Training Division teaching and inspiring new recruits for the last three recruit schools.
