MADISON (WKOW) -- Students in the Madison Police Department's "Middle School U 2013" program had a special guest at their graduation Friday.
Chief Noble Wray spoke at the ceremony and took pictures with the young graduates as they received their certificates.
Over the course of the week, the kids took on the role of detective, and learned ways to navigate the web and cell phones for cyber clues.
"They find fingerprints on things and we did that and then we kind of put all the pieces together and we figured out who did the crime," said Lizzi Mitchell, who completed the program.
Prior to Friday's graduation, the nine students got up close and personal with some K-9 officers and police motorcycles.
The students were responsible for gathering evidence and conducting interviews to see exactly what life is like behind the badge.
