The second class of Citizen Police Academy graduates were honored Thursday at Meridian Community College.
The program started earlier this year, and it's designed to teach volunteers more about how the Meridian Police Department operates and give them resources to take back into their communities.
Program organizer Mike Vick says graduates from the first class laid a solid groundwork.
"The first class when their ten weeks was over they didn't want to end so they formed an alumni association and came up with bylaws, and elected officers, and figured out dues, and they just want to keep on doing what they learned to do," said Vick.
