West Palm Beach Police Adding Officers Because Of Federal Grant

Good news for the West Palm Beach police department. A one and a quarter million dollar federal grant will pay to hire 10 new police officers. Chief Vincent Demasi "has got some very definite ideas of where he wants to put the extra personnel, but he doesn’t want to make a commitment. A city spokesman says, "It’s going to be dictated by the needs when they get here. At this point they’re an additional 10 (sets of ) boots on the ground." The Palm Beach Post reports it'll be several months before the money is in place and the officers are hired.
