More Cincinnati Police officers are headed to the city's streets starting later this summer, Mayor John Cranley announced Tuesday. 

The officers are members of the city's "lateral transfer" recruit class. 

The city says its lateral transfer recruit class involves offering positions to experienced law enforcement officers from other agencies in Ohio. The officers take part in an expedited training process to acquaint them with the Cincinnati Police Department's policies and procedures.

Recruits who successfully complete police academy training will be assigned to patrol duty beginning July 7.

Letters offering positions in the recruit class recently were sent to qualified applicants. The city's police department has received acceptances from 23 people. The recruits are undergoing physical examinations this week. Those who pass the exam will begin training May 12.

In addition to the lateral transfer class, a class comprised of up to 60 new recruits will happen in fiscal year 2015 which begins July 1, the city said.

"We promised to add cops to the streets and we are," Cranley said. "Help is on the way for our neighborhoods."
