The Electra Police Department will soon have another full-time officer on the force.
Chief Johnny Morris says an officer was hired this morning, who works right now as a jailer at the Ellis County jail in Waxahachie.
The department had five police officer openings just before Christmas and filled three of them by around February.
Chief Morris says there's just one more full-time officer opening to fill now before the force is fully staffed.
The new officer's "start" date has not yet been determined.
