Va. to boost marine police

Virginia will hire 10 marine police officers, a near 15 percent staff increase at an agency that's seen heavy budget cuts.

Virginia Marine Resources Commission spokesman John Bull says the officers will be hired within the next two weeks and will boost the commission's numbers to 78 officers and administrative employees.

A state budget cut that the commission had anticipated didn't materialize, leaving the agency with money to hire the officers.

Each officer's salary and benefits typically cost the state $54,000 annually.
