It was standing room only for a special ceremony Monday to recognize promotions within the Lexington police department.  A long-time local religious leader offered some sentiments as the guest speaker.

Reverend Willis Polk says Lexington's police department features a 'good foundation' and 'good work performance standards.'  Still, the Baptist preacher stressed the importance of having a heart, mind, and spirit for police work, and to do it with fairness and honesty.
