Verona, MS to train Reserve Police
Verona officials have given the police department the green light to hire and train twenty reserve officers.
Sabrina Cox, one of several candidates for one of the slots, says that while the job doesn't pay monetarily, she hopes it will lead to a full-time position.
Police Chief Anthony Anderson says this is the first time in over a decade the city has employed reserve officers.
Anderson says the officers' presence will help with the safety of the community.
He says the town has six full-time officers and a few part-time officers.
Anderson says the city looks to add twenty volunteers who will be uniformed, trained and issued an on duty weapon.
