The village of Lowellville will be a little safer with the hiring of new members on the safety forces.

Two part-time police officers were sworn in Tuesday by Lowellville’s new police chief, Ryan Bonacci. The two are in addition to one that was hired a few weeks ago.

While the new hires are rookies, the chief feels he has a good mix of officers on the force.

“I think it will do well. These guys will be able to teach the younger guys what to do, what their responsibilities are, how to act in different situations.  The younger guys will bring that need for knowledge, that need to make the community better,” Bonacci said.

Three firefighters also were added to the department Tuesday evening.
