Two new police officers have been hired by Bellevue Borough, with a third expected to join them later this summer.


A decision to hire three police officers this year could cost Bellevue Borough a federal grant that could have paid for two full-time officers.

Bellevue joined nearly 7,300 communities across the nation in applying for a Community Oriented Police Services (COPS) grant through the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) COPS Hiring Recovery Fund. Part of the federal economic stimulus plan, the grant program will fully pay for as many as two police officers in a particular community for as long as three years.
