THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville police are beefing up patrol after several complaints of loud music and dangerous speeders.

Citizens in the area of town referred to as "Dewey City"...near Wolfe, Alexander, and McKinnley streets, have complained for months about loud music at all hours of the night. And cars speeding well above 25 miles per hour in school zones.

Police say they're increasing patrol in the area so don't be surprised if you see officers in their cars, on bikes, and even walking the streets at all times.

"We have daycares on this side of town, a lot of churches on this side of town, and we have the Douglas alumni, which has a lot of foot traffic and vehicle traffic in and out up there," said Lt. Eric Hampton with the Thomasville Police Department.

The police department urges anyone especially children to be careful when walking the streets on the west side of town. And noise and speeding violators beware. Police are on the look out and ready to write tickets.  Feedback
