The City of New Haven will be adding more than two dozen additional police officers.
Mayor John DeStefano Jr. tonight will swear in 26 new police officers who recently graduated from the New Haven Police Academy.
They are part of the city’s push to reduce violence.
After completing around three months of field training, they will spend the first two years of their career on walking beats across the city.
The swearing in will be held at 6 p.m. at Career High School, 140 Legion Ave. in New Haven.
