The Tioga Police Department last week got the go-ahead to fill a vacant position, following heated discussion about the process required to do so.
Another motion sought the rehiring of former officer Monique Lopez, but that motion died for lack of a second.
Police Chief Corey Murphy came to the Tioga City Commission meeting Monday last week to outline recent incidents that resulted in officers or suspects being hurt, primarily due to a lack of sufficient personnel.
He told the commission officers have been called to four fights in the past year. In three of those, officers have been injured.
