NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Some citizen's in New Hanover County graduated Tuesday night with highest honors from the Sheriff's Office Academy.

The class began back in September and allowed everyday people to get an inside look into how the sheriff's office works.

"I have talked with several folks that I know personally that have asked me questions about am I getting anything out of it and is it worthwhile, and I have to say, that it is very worthwhile for anyone across the county that would want to participate. I would highly encourage them to," said Leon Daniels, a graduate of the Citizen's Academy.

The sheriff's office will host another Citizen's Academy beginning in January.
