The Utica Police Department's Citizen's Police Academy held its annual graduation ceremony Monday evening following a nine-week course.

The students learned about the rules and regulations that a police officer has to go through in a typical shift.

This year's graduating class of 16 was the biggest class they have had since they rebooted the program three years ago.

"After graduation we hope they take whatever they learned and spread their knowledge throughout the communities that they live in, and hope that some of them take our police test... or if they have family members interested in being police officer," said Sgt. James Laurey, one of the instructors.

The course is offered once a year at MVCC.

Congratulations to all of this year's graduates.
