Money to hire police officers

By Tara Simone

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) -

An almost two-million dollar grant is helping hire eight police officers in the city of West Palm Beach.  The $1.8 million grant will provide 100% of the salary for the entry-level positions.  The grant will last for three years.  After that, the department will have to retain the positions for a fourth year.  The mayor is expected to accept the grant at Monday night's council meeting.
