The Turner County Sheriff's office says it needs more space.

Sheriff Andy Hester says he's had to resort to stacking files in hallways and the jail. He would like the county to combine his office and the 911 center into one facility.

"If they did put the 911 center down here it would make our operation run smoother," Hester said. "It would help us serve the public better which is the biggest concern for me and it would save the taxpayers money if they decided to build both projects on one site."

Commissioners will revisit the suggestion during their next meeting.
