The Opelousas Police Department is welcoming eight new officers to the force.
The officers are in different stages of readiness--and some do require more training.
"The dangers that exist in this particular profession can cost you your life," says Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow. "We want to make sure that that doesn't happen."
Gallow says the officers were added in the interest of public safety.
