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.
