Atlantic City’s Police Department added 14 new Class II officers to its force Thursday.

With the additions, there are a total of 31 Class II officers with the department. They handle many of the same functions as the Class I officers but are paid at an hourly rate rather than salaried.

Among the promotions are:

Acting Deputy Chief William Mazur to deputy chief.

Lts. Christian Kammerman, Robert DeGaetano and Gregory Anderson to captain.
