Are we replacing two officers or adding two new positions?

Rick the 2010 budget called for one narcotics officer and two patrolmen and the Council approved the additional patrolmen with the stipulation that they not start until the second half of the fiscal year. These are the two additional patrolmen that you are seeing advertised.
