Police officials said they feel secure enough about the stability of money they are receiving through a state grant program to hire three officers. Police Chief Richard M. Tefank said the money flowing from the Citizens Option for Public Safety program--known as COPS--will be steady through 2000. And if it ends at that point, the department will have had enough retirements to keep the new officers, he said.
