Albany - - Albany Police officers are getting a lesson in ethics. Police Chief James Younger is requiring all officers to go through 12 hours of ethics training.

Officers began an eight hour training course Wednesday.

The instructor says the class goes beyond teaching right from wrong.  

"We are given a position of power and authority over people's lives. It is absolutely essential that we understand what that power and authority does and use it righteously and with honor," says Lt. Randy Sutton of the Las Vegas Police Department.

Sutton showed the officers a video of a former Riverdale cop who was convicted of murder and explained how officers aren't above the law.
