TRENTON - A year after more than 100 layoffs, the Trenton Police Department has announced plans to rehire 18 officers.

The rehiring is made possible by a grant from the federal government. The department can now also re-promote more than 20 supervisors.

Last year, the department was forced to lay off 100 police officers due to budget cuts.
