Hattiesburg is welcoming two officers to the police department.
Officers John West and Jonathan Brady were sworn in Monday by Mayor Johnny DuPree.
Both officers previously worked with the Petal Police Deparment. West spent five years with Hattiesburg PD and returns after just six months at Petal.
Hattiesburg Acting Police Chief Frank Misenhelter says plans are to hire more officers to fully staff the department.
Monday's swearing-in ceremony brings HPD up to 117 officers.
