OPD Citizens Academy, More Than I Expected

It's been a few weeks since my graduation from the Owensboro Police Department's Citizens Academy and I got our class photo picture from our instructor. I've always had an interest in law enforcement and knew I just had to attend the Citizens Academy when it began in August.
