CUYAHOGA FALLS: What a difference three years makes.
In 2010, budget cuts included layoffs of two police officers.
Not only have the positions since been reinstated, but this year the city also will hire at least three additional officers.
According to the police department's Facebook page, a civil service test for prospective crime fighters is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Feb. 19 at Cuyahoga Falls High School.
Falls Capt. Jack Davis said more details would be provided once the test is officially posted.
Also in the police budget this year are funds to replace two Ford Taurus cruisers with Ford Fusions, a new motorcycle for traffic enforcement around school zones, and a state-of-the art firearm-training simulator called Shoot, Don't Shoot.
