LIVERMORE -- The police department added to its ranks Thursday, swearing in seven new officers during a ceremony at the Robert Livermore Community Center.

According to a press release, a reallocation of resources allowed the department to hire the officers and restore its Drug and Gang Task Force and a special operations unit. The officers will help fill previously vacant positions and staff the special unit.

At the event, Livermore Police Chief Steve Sweeney recognized officers and staff who received commendations and awards in the past year, as well as a newly promoted sergeant and lieutenant.
