ROSWELL, Ga. – Just as with any graduation, there were stories of bygone days and tears and hope for the future. For the 24 people in the Roswell Citizens' Police Academy, it was no different Nov. 7, as they met for the last time as a group for their graduation.

"They got an in-depth look at what we do," said Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant. "They saw our officers as people behind a badge, rather than just the badge."

The 10-week course offered residents the chance to see up close the methodology behind policing. Some of the classes included detective work, crime scene investigations, S.W.A.T., 911

communications and K-9 units.

"Learning how awesome our officers are and how hard it is to respond to each and every situation was great," said Danny Broadway, a student in the class. "There are so many things out there these guys are doing that we don't know about."

Beyond learning just what police officers do, the hope from the department is these students will learn that officers are professionals doing their jobs, rather than people to be feared. The students can then take that knowledge home to their families and friends.

This was the 24th annual citizens' academy.

Anyone interested in applying for the 2014 class may contact Lawanda Kornegay, with community relations, at 770-640-4455 or visit www.roswellgov.com for an online application.
