(Minneapolis, MN) -- The Minnesota State Patrol's newest graduating class includes a set of identical twins.
Sisters Jamie and Jessica Bird were among a dozen troopers who graduated Tuesday from the 14-week training session at Fort Ripley. The twins decided at the same time that they wanted to join the Minnesota State Patrol.
The two had studied nursing, first at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls before transferring to St. Cloud State University to finish their degrees. They have been assigned to begin their time with the MSP next Tuesday at the same station.
