Eleven newly trained police officers will graduate Wednesday from the Niagara County Law Enforcement Academy.
Two of the new officers already have been hired by the Town of Lewiston and one by the Middleport Police Department, according to an announcement from Niagara University, which hosts the academy on its campus.
The academy's 66th graduation ceremony since its founding in 1973 will begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Castellani Art Museum on the Niagara campus. Niagara County Assistant District Attorney Peter M. Wydysh will be the keynote speaker.
Also scheduled to speak are the Rev. James J. Maher, the university president, and Joel Eberth, the graduating class president.
