New LPD officers graduate Police Academy

After hundreds of hours of training, LPD welcomed new officers Friday afternoon.

Of the 165 applicants who initially took the test, only 11 passed all courses in the Police Academy's 24-week program.

The new officers of the A Class of 2-15 walked across the stage at the City Bank Auditorium.

In addition to graduation, Officer Jason Lepage was promoted to corporal, and Officers Timothy Varner and Danny Tickner were awarded the Medal of Valor.
