Albany--  The Albany Police Department now has some new certified officers.

This class includes three new recruits and seven pre-certified officers. They finished several grueling weeks of physical, shooting and driving training.

On Monday night, the graduates took their oath to protect and serve. The Albany Police force is now up to 98-percent employment.

New APD Officer Nakia Ellis is ready to help make a difference in the city.

"Hopefully we can accomplish making our community safer. It's bringing us together, the community and the police department as one," said Ellis.

Some veteran officers also received promotions Monday night. Eight officers were promoted to Corporal, eight to Sergeant and one to Lieutenant.
