After over 600 hours of training, 15 cadets were honored by their colleagues and family as they graduated from the Peace Officers Academy.

This year's class was a special one, since ten of the 15 cadets are honorably discharged U.S. military veterans, with a combined military service of close to 59 years.

Five of the cadets will work for the Grand Junction Police Department.

"These are special people who have totally bought into the concept of service to others before self," said Academy Director Bill Gardner.

Nathan Woodliff-Stanley, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, delivered the keynote speech.
