LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Twenty-three new officers will help keep the River City safe after graduating from the Louisville Metro Police's training academy Friday.

The ceremony took place at the Iroquois Amphitheater and featured a sweet surprise for one woman in the audience as her newly graduated officer got on one knee and popped the question on stage

Mayor Greg Fischer also spoke at the ceremony and thanked Metro Council members for voting in favor of a 2 percent gas fee which will be added on to some customer's LG&E bills. He said the increased fee will help fund more officers in Louisville and make the city safer.
