LUZERNE — Borough Council on Wednesday night hired two new part-time police officers.

Officer Michael Fuller will work on an as-needed basis for $12.50 per hour while Corey Prozinski, a recent police academy graduate, will earn $11 on an as-needed conditional basis as he completes testing.

In other law enforcement matters, borough officials announced the rearranging of cameras at the Charles Street Park. Officials will now look to utilize newly installed laptop computers in borough police vehicles to increase surveillance when needed.

The borough council also announced the purchase of a new phone system, which will feature a voicemail box for each borough police officer to make the police even more directly accessible to the community.

In other business, the council voted 5-1 to commit to the West Side Council of Governments joint acquisition of a vacuum truck, tar buggy and street sweeper.

Councilman Jason Tarreto, the sole vote against the motion, had concerns about who will ultimately operate the equipment as well as Luzerne’s actual need for it.

Councilman Bill Turcan was absent from the meeting and unable to cast a vote.
