Eastern Michigan University plans to hire four additional full-time police officers, with an eye toward having them on duty by mid-January. 

  

The officers will be assigned to off-campus patrols, which are currently conducted by two officers. The increase to six officers around Leforge road, just north of campus, will bring additional resources to the area.
