The town of Bethune is adding a third officer to its police department, effectively tripling its manpower in less than two months. After going into executive session to discuss a personnel matter, council returned to regular session and voted unanimously to allow Police Chief Joey Cobb to hire Joshua Gainey as a reserve police officer. Gainey is a certified police officer with some 10 years experience, Cobb said.
