Corey Rooney and Michael Agnello have been appointed as special officers in the Westwood Police Department.
The Westwood Council unanimously voted to approve the two appointments during the meeting Tuesday night.
"I feel extremely lucky to find such qualified and eager young men," Police Chief Frank Regino said.
Both men were appointed as Class 1 Special Officers, which means they have some police academy training and are granted some law enforcement powers, like traffic enforcement, but do not carry guns and cannot make arrests.
Regino said he already had many assignments lined up for Rooney and Agnello, including school and court security, parking enforcement and foot patrols, among others.
