ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

More than a dozen people from Forrest, Jones, Wayne and other counties are ready to work as part-time or auxiliary law enforcement officers after receiving basic certification from the Sandersville Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy.

A graduation ceremony was held Tuesday night at Jones County Junior College for 13 officers, who underwent 200 hours of training over a five month period.

"This will certify them to be able to work on a part-time only basis," said Eddy Ingram, academy director. "But, at the same time, they have to undergo the same requirements that a full-time officer does, but we just don't do quite as many hours as a full-time academy," he said.

Over the years, about 400 law officers have received their certification through that academy.
