A record number of number of officers graduated from Lake Region State College's peace officer training program today. 19 new officers graduated from the 18-week program.

This is the 65th class to graduate from Lake Region since the program launched 25 years ago. Devils Lake Police Chief Keith Schroeder says the school has turned out many quality officers for his department over the years. Instructors say it's because the program is tougher than other law enforcement courses. Lake Region State College also offers peace officer training in Minot during the spring semester and summer academies in Grand Forks and Fargo.
