Mandi Boyd is one of them, and she has a special connection to the Huntsville Police Department.

Her husband is a current officer, and he presented her with her new badge at Friday’s ceremony.

“He's been a police officer for five years and he introduced me to this side of the community and it's because of him that I fell in love with law enforcement. So I have him to thank,” she said.

Huntsville police has two academy classes each year.
