Longview Swears In New Officers

Some new badges will be patrolling the streets of Longview. Five new Longview Police Department officers were sworn in this morning at City Hall and officially joined the department. The new badges bring the city total to 149 full time officers or full staff.

The department will increase its force to 160 officers over the next three years. For most of them, it's a goal they have been working toward for many years.
