The City of Grand Rapids now has two new police officers. At last night’s city council meeting, Mayor Dale Adams swore in Justin Edmunson and Gregory Lease Jr. With the two new hires, the city’s Police Department is still not fully staffed.
Also at last night’s city council meeting a donation was accepted from Mighty Mutts that will cover the cost of a K-9 bullet proof vest and the Grand Rapids Fire Department was given the approval to offer conditional offers of employment to Will Richter and Donny Wilson pending pre-employment background screening. The next Grand Rapids City Council meeting is July 14th.
