Janesville Police Department plans to return to full staff
The Janesville Police Department plans to be at full strength sometime next year.
Deputy Chief Dan Davis says seven officer positions are currently vacant. Davis says community needs are being met as effectively as overtime allows. The Police and Fire Commission Thursday approved an availability pool of eight new recruits. Davis says he's impressed with the quality of the candidates.
He anticipates the hiring process to begin as soon as the city council approves next year's budget.
