Lawrence Rehires 5 Police Officers To Combat Growing Violence

LAWRENCE (CBS) – Lawrence is rehiring five police officers in an effort to combat the growing violence there, as evidenced by a particularly rough weekend.

This weekend, three people were stabbed, one woman slashed, and a firefighter bitten as Lawrence nightclubs let out and about 800 people swarmed the downtown area
