Cecil - A South Georgia town has its first police department.

The town of Cecil has hired two full-time officers and added a police department at the newly renovated city hall. Until now, the town had been patrolled by Cook County deputies.

"We will be hiring some part time officers to help us initially and our goal as Cecil grows is to add full time officers to that as well," said Mayor Michael Yates.

The town of Cecil will host a community appreciation day from 11 until 4:00 Saturday to show off the new facilities. It will be held at city hall on Roundtree Street, right under the water tower.
