Lincoln police Chief Richard Bosco told council on Tuesday he would like to hire a few more part-time officers following the resignation of two patrolmen.

Council accepted the resignations of part-time officer Jodi Leitzel and full-time officer Lucas McClure.

Council appointed part-time officer Michael Mihal to a permanent full-time position. Mihal was temporarily promoted to full-time last month while McClure was on unpaid administrative leave.

That leaves the department with two full-time and seven part-time officers.

Bosco said he has enough officers to cover all shifts, but would like at least two more part-time officers in case of call-offs, vacation or illnesses.
