The Niagara County Law Enforcement Academy (NCLEA) recently held its 67th graduation ceremony at Niagara University's Castellani Art Museum, awarding degrees to 15 men and women graduates.
Graduation speakers included the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., president of Niagara University; Christopher Wesolowski, president of the NCLEA's 67th class; and Niagara County District Attorney Caroline A. Wojtaszek, the keynote speaker.
Founded in 1973, the NCLEA was originally formed to serve the police agencies of Niagara County, but is now assisting law enforcement departments in Erie, Orleans, Genesee, Wyoming and Livingston counties, as well. NU is the only four-year, private college in the state to host a full-time police academy.
