ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Monday night, a dozen men and women officially became Albany Police officers.

The department held a swearing in ceremony for recent Police Academy Graduates. They had to endure 10 weeks of physical training, weapons training, defense tactics, and studying for tests.

City leaders joined friends and relatives of the new officers as Chief John Proctor presented each graduate with an official badge.

"It's a great feeling and probably one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life," said Police Academy Graduate, Dylan Lever. "I feel that it's my calling to help people and that's what I'm here to do."

The graduates will go through field training and a testing process for three months before they can officially hit the streets.
