 Albany --  Tobacco products were already prohibited inside all buildings and vehicles of the Dougherty County school system.

The new policy prohibits tobacco products on all school property at all times, not just during school hours.  

"We had some concerns from the health department about smoking being allowed after hours and this policy just states that at no time will smoking be allowed," Deputy Superintendent Carlos Keith.  

Worth County was the first school system in the Southwest Health District to adopt this policy.
