May 6, 2014 – Cadets in the Mercyhurst University Police Academy had a hands on experience behind the wheel today.

The race track at Lake Erie Speedway was a perfect course for the cadets to practice driving defensively and learning how to make quick maneuvers.

The director of the police academy says one of the biggest complaints he gets from police chiefs is that up and coming officers don't have enough driving experience.

On the course, cadets had to maneuver through curves, serpentine through cones and backup through cones as well.

The cadets in this class graduate in mid-June.
