• Thomson Police Department to occupy old city hall
By Linda Green

The Thomson Police Department will be under one roof.
The City Council accepted a proposal from Police Chief John Seay on Thursday to relocate the police headquarters to the former city hall and eliminate the sub station.
According to Seay, the move will make conducting police business less confusing for the public and for law enforcement personnel.
Currently, the police headquarters, which houses the police chief, investigators and the clerk of court, is located in the Law Enforcement Center on Public Safety Drive. Uniformed officers operate out of the sub station at 105 McDuffie Avenue.
The chief said that it is important that the two locations are consolidated into one. “We will all be together,” he said. “If I need to talk to an officer about something, I will not have to ride all the way across town to the sub station to do it. They won’t have to leave their post and come all the way out here.”
