On Tuesday, January 30 the City of Savannah moved forward on two new Savannah Police precincts.
City leaders broke ground on a new Central Precinct which will be located on MLK, Jr. Blvd. between W. 33rd and W. 34th streets. The new Central Precinct is being paid for by SPLOST revenue. The new Central Precinct will house state-of-the-art equipment for police officers as well as a meeting room to be used by the community. Currently Central Precinct officers operate out of rented space at 1512 Bull St.
Immediately following the groundbreaking ceremony, the City held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Eastside Precinct.
