Cincinnati has hired 23 new police officers from other departments to boost enforcement efforts as the number of homicides increases.
Cincinnati mayor's office spokesman Kevin Osborne told the Cincinnati Enquirer Tuesday the officers will start training May 12 and be on the streets July 7.
Osborne said the original hiring goal was 15 to 20 officers with at least two years of experience but the department had more qualified applicants than expected.
