Iris Daiber of Vandalia graduated from the American Legion Youth Police Program on June 29. Daiber was sent to the program by Crawford-Hale American Legion Post 95 of Vandalia.

The program, sponsored by the American Legion, Illinois State Police and Illinois National Guard, is a week-long military-style program to give youth a taste of what it’s like to go through the police academy and military boot camp. The youth had classes in crime scene investigation, gangs, Internet crimes and other police-style training. Every evening, the youth had military-style training with the National Guard. Daiber, the daughter of Tim and Gina Daiber of Bluff City and a junior at Vandalia Community High School, is shown with her sponsor member, Chris Irwin.
