HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Huntsville Police Department is getting some new officers. Twenty-three cadets just graduated from the Huntsville Police Academy's 56th session.

Family and friends watched as the police chief addressed the graduates Friday morning.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle and Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall also attended today's ceremony.

"I think it's more and more difficult to serve in law enforcement generally. It takes a special person that's willing to accept that responsibility. That we have 23 here today in Huntsville that have answered that call, and Huntsville will be better off as a result of their service," said Marshall.

The graduation ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Huntsville Police Academy at 6000 Cecil Fain Dr.
