Eight officers who were laid off by the Minneapolis Police Department in 2009 while still in the Field Training program will return to work this week, reported KSTP ABC News. They will go through a four-week refresher course at the outset.

This year, all 25 officers who comprised the first lay-off in department history will have returned to work, fulfilling a promise made by Chief Tim Dolan.

Wow this has to be very exciting to those officers... Especially with the economy being what it is today... I would say they are very fortunate.. I feel that other state and local agencies should follow suit maybe this will cut down on the crime rate in some of our over populated cities throughout the country.

More officers on the street don't maybe cut down crime, they absolutely do.
