Four law enforcement agencies around the Ozarks will be receiving federal grants to hire more officers.
The grants come from the Justice Department's Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS).
The Vernon County sheriff's office and police departments in Highlandville, Neosho and Forsyth will each add an officer.
Under the terms of the agreement, each department will hire a recently discharged veteran. All new law enforcement positions funded by the COPS grant must be filled by veterans who have served at least 180 days since September of last year.
220 cities and counties around the country will receive the grants for 2012.
