DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - With 17 students receiving certificates today, the number of graduates from Lake Region State College's Peace Officer Training Program is at a record 83 this year.

The college operates a spring and fall academy at its Devils Lake campus, as well as summer academies in Grand Forks and Fargo. Program director Lloyd Halvorson tells the Grand Forks Herald that healthy enrollments in all four academies this year helped Lake Region reach the record.

Since 1987, Lake Region has graduated more than 1,000 students from the Peace Officer Training Program. Graduates have been hired by 116 different law enforcement agencies.
