Mount Olive’s short-staffed police department should be at full strength soon.
Jammie Royall, the town manager, said he expects three openings to be filled in early March.
The department hired three officers two weeks ago. There are currently 18 on the force.
Royall said he feels good about the current status and progress of the police department.
Jason Hughes and John Duncan were recently sworn in as police chief and assistant police chief, respectively.
