FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - They won't be getting law degrees, but police officers from Summit, Eagle, Lake and Clear Creek counties are getting legal training on what to expect in court. 

Bruce Brown, district attorney for Summit and surrounding counties, says about 30 officers attended the training, including officers from the Breckenridge, Silverthorne and Frisco police departments, the Summit County Sheriff's Office and the Colorado State Patrol. 

According to the Summit Daily, the training covered the meaning behind various attorney objections and what effect those rulings have after a judge has made a ruling. 

Officers practiced writing and presenting reports, and sitting on the witness stand and being examined by the prosecutor.
