Officers needed on Americus Police force

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - The Americus Police Department is looking to fill seven positions on its force.

The police chief said these officers would provide the department with the opportunity to do more proactive policing.

"We need to get up to the point where we can do some of the specialized things that the department has done in the past such as community policing and community relations and those kinds of things," said Chief Mark Scott, Americus PD.

Right now, they have enough officers to respond to call, but Chief Mark Scott wants his officers to be able to get around and be seen in the community more often.
