Jacob Waryu and Adam Hignett are sworn in Thursday as Amherst part-time police officers. Their oath was administered by mayor Mark Costilow in a ceremony at the North Lake Street station. The new officers will spend the next four months in intense training. They were hired ahead of the retirement this summer of Det. John Balog, who has served on the Amherst force the past 34 years.
