Turner County Sheriff's office building gun range

 Turner County Sheriff's deputies are looking forward to training on their own shooting range.

 The county is clearing land next door to the Sheriff's office for the new shooting range.

 The sheriff's office has used other gun ranges in the past. 

 The Sheriff says it's something the office has needed for sometime now. 

"We got a little work ahead of us but we're, we're excited. It's something that we have to train to make ourselves better to protect the public. And we're just excited  to be able  to have something we can train on," Sheriff Andy Hester said. 

The sheriff's office is putting in the labor to save on the cost of building the shooting range.
