The Cynthiana Police Department may soon be four men stronger in its 16-member force.
At a special meeting on Tuesday, commissioners voted to hire two police officer recruits after a lengthy discussion.
Cynthiana Mayor Jim Brown wanted to hold off hiring the recruits citing the city would be better served if it could get two certified officers.
The recruits must complete a 16-week academy in Richmond before being road-ready.
Brown indicated that there may be certified officers interested in the positions from a neighboring department.
