In honor of a longtime protector of the community, students in Walker County learned about law enforcement Friday.

In Huntsville, some of that city's high schoolers participated in Larry McDugle Criminal Justice Day.

For 38 years, Captain McDugle served the area for Huntsville PD and the Walker County Sheriff's Office. He died of cancer 15 months ago.

In his honor, 70 students in the Huntsville High criminal justice program learned about the various aspects of law enforcement from area agencies.

Walker County commissioners also declared Friday "Larry McDugle Day."
