Lee County - - A South Georgia Judge says probation officers in Lee County need a place to call home.

Thursday night, Judge James Sizemore, Jr. asked county commissioners to find space for officers to have a center in Leesburg.

Right now, officers travel between Macon County and Sumter County. Sizemore says it doesn't allow them to give full attention to Lee county's probationers.  

"We have over a thousand probationers on probation in Lee county...Just having the officers here five days a week instead of just twice monthly makes it easier for them to supervise the probationers," Judge Sizemore says.

The Commission hasn't considered the request yet, but Judge Sizemore feels his request will get the ball rolling.
