Mayor John McNally and Youngstown Police Chief Robin Lees swore in Casey Kelly, Darrel Herdman and Eric Mallory to the Youngstown Police Department at 9 a.m. Thursday. They were hired because three officers were promoted last week.

Chief Robin Lees said the police department isn’t done hiring officers.

“We are looking forward to hopefully hiring some more officers,” he said. “We just received word that we were awarded a grant through the Community Policing Program.”
