Photos: S.L. police, fire recruits graduate

Steve Drott kisses his daughter, officer Josie Drott, after pinning on her badge during a Salt Lake City Police Department Academy graduation ceremony at the Pioneer Precinct in Salt Lake City on Friday. Drott, who recently had a stem cell transplant to fight his cancer, said he was thankful he felt well enough to watch his daughter graduate. Fifteen Salt Lake police and two fire department recruits spent 23 weeks training in the police academy. Beginning Monday, the graduates will embark on 15 weeks of field training with veteran officers to be certified for solo patrol work.
