Youngstown adds nine new police officers


The addition of nine new officers this morning has brought the Youngstown Police Department back to the number of officers Police Chief Rod Foley says he needs to operate effectively.

Eight men and one woman dressed in all black and stood attentively in the City Hall council chambers. The nine candidates each raised one hand before Mayor Chuck Sammarone and swore to protect the people in the city of Youngstown.

The nine new officers spent the day celebrating with their families and other members of the police department. In one week they will each be patrolling the streets of Youngstown.

The department now has 152 full-time officers.

Actually, i know one of the men hired, and it wasnt because of anyone he knew...I dont know what good it will do, but lets hope more cops can help, i think its going to be a rowdy summer. This is why i long for fall and winter, the homies dont like the cold, and it keeps the crime down much better than any cop can!
