Both are on their regular assignments pending an investigation, he said.
Daniley was hired in April 2017. Robinson was hired in July 2017.
Both women were freed after appearing before a magistrate. Court records do not show if they were required to post bail.
Each was ordered to have no contact with the other, however.
