20 graduate from public safety institute at Camp Shelby

Twenty cadets from across Mississippi graduated Thursday from Class 2014 of the Southern Regional Public Safety Institute at Camp Shelby.

They participated in an 11-week course to receive certificates in basic law enforcement training.

Cadets from six police departments, four sheriff's departments and two state agencies took part. Three cadets who were self-sponsored also went through the course.

The institute had been located on the Southern Miss campus on the Gulf Coast, but moved to Camp Shelby after Hurricane Katrina.
