Danville Mayor Requests 6 New Police Officers

Danville Mayor Rickey Williams, Jr. is asking the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners to appoint six new probationary police officers.  The Board has scheduled a special meeting for Tuesday, August 13th, at 4:00 p.m. to act on the request.

Mayor Williams says two of those officers would fill vacancies, and the other four would bring Danville’s Police force up to full staffing of 62 sworn officers.

A swearing-in ceremony for the six new Probationary Police Officers is contingent upon them passing physical and psychological examinations.
