JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

More than a dozen students have formed new bonds with the Jackson Police Department.

They graduated as part of the department's Citizen's Youth Academy.

The students spent the last several days at the JPD police academy.

They took special classes to give them a better understanding of what police officers do on a daily basis. Most importantly, these students all built new relationships with officers.

Officers hope that by earning the trust of these students, they'll also earn the trust and respect of their parents.
