Tonight was graduation night of the Citizens Academy sponsored by the Ashland Police Department.
During the seven-week course, folks got the chance to work with officers and experience what they go through on the job.
Participants were placed in different scenarios including shoot-don't-shoot situations.
Officers say it's a great way to let the public know how important their job is.
Each graduate got a certificate and memorial coin and were treated to a nice dinner.
They plan on holding another course next year.
