Simsboro to hire 2nd police officer
Simsboro will add another part-time police office to their ranks by January of 2011. Aldermen this month voted to amend the 2010-11 budget to include pay for a new nighttime police officer.
Simsboro Mayor Willie Hendricks was excited to see the amendment voted into the budget.
“It was an historical moment,” Hendricks said. “This is a fabulous thing for Simsboro. During the re-election, the citizens said that they wanted additional protection after hours. They said they feel that after dark they want to continue to feel safe.”
