Hattiesburg swears in three new police officers

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Three recruits were sworn in Monday by Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree.

The three men's families and friends were all present as they accepted their duties on behalf of the Hattiesburg Police Department.

"I've been waiting for a long time, and I finally got my opportunity today, and it feels great, but I'm kind of nervous at the same time," said new recruit Demetrius Breland.

"We get recruits who come in that actually want to live in Hattiesburg and want to work in Hattiesburg, and that's a good thing."

One young man sworn is from Wales.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
