The Flushing City Police Department has bolstered its force by adding new part-time officers Samantha Buth (left) and Officer Nick White (right), who received their oaths of office from Flushing City Clerk Michelle King at the April 12 Flushing City Council meeting. Flushing’s addition of part-time officers comes three months after the city hired a full-time police officer to fill a budgeted position that had been left vacant for over two years. Flushing City Council approved a pay raise for part-time officers from $15 an hour to $21 an hour at its Feb. 8 meeting. — B.G.
