CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A couple of enhancements coming to the Canton Police Department, though one of them is a “maybe”.
The department will add its own victim advocates, on top of those at the county level, if the city gets a federal innovative policing grant.
City council approved adding two victim advocates.
And, one “for sure”: eight new cadets have been sworn in, bringing the department up to 168 officers.
Police Chief Jack Angelo says he’s like the department at 175 officers.
