Americus police moving to new offices

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The Americus police officers are excited to move into new offices after more than 4 months of construction. Renovations on the fire and police department on South Lee began at the end of last year.

Officers will begin moving into the new offices Thursday and Friday. Officials say the move is boosting morale within the department.

"They're very enthusiastic about it. They're looking forward to moving to the new section. We have somewhat been in a cramped environment for the last 4 months, and it has been a long time, long time coming," said Major Herman Lamar with the Americus Police Department.

They ask that you avoid stopping by the department unless it's an absolute emergency while they're moving.
