Haverhill police officers are making their presence known this summer through inner-city neighborhoods.

Haverhill Mayor James J. Fiorentini says the added foot and bicycle patrols by police are to keep residents safe. The patrols are among stepped-up efforts by city officials to curb violent crime and drug activity in the city.

Under the new city budget effective July 1, three new police officers are being hired in addition to five hired in the past year.
