The Mission Police Department is expanding and on Monday they added ten more officers to the force.
A ceremony took place at the Mission substation off of Military highway and Glasscock road on Monday. The new hires come after the city council approved the hiring of new officers. Mission Police Chief Leo Longoria says the new officers will have a significant impact on the community. The department plans to build another substation on North Inspiration road in the near future which could mean more officers would need to be hired.
