Albany--The Dougherty County School System's Police Department has only been patrolling the hallways since the end of October and already there is talk of expanding the force.
The Dougherty County Board of Education safety and security committee met today to discuss hiring an investigator who would be second in command to Chief Troy Conley. The Dougherty County Board of Education must first approve the position, and then seek candidates for hire.
"One of the main topics of concern was the actual creation of a second in command position. Just more or less a discussion of the responsibilities and job duties". The school board hired 11 officers for middle and high schools and plans to hire more.
