Council unanimously approved adding two additional police officers to the streets.
The officers will work the night shift and focus on the downtown.
To cover costs, the city is applying for a Community Oriented Policing Services federal grant, which will pay for 75% of their salary for three years. The city will pay the remaining 25%.
The new officers will be ready to start next March.
