A Richmond County Sheriff’s Office substation will soon be opening in the Harrisburg community near Platt’s Funeral Home on Crawford Avenue.

The building, which was donated by the owners of the funeral home, will be a “mini” substation to house the two beat deputies and any special operations teams working in the neighborhood, said sheriff’s Lt. Scott Gay. Crews are still working on the building and Lt. Gay said could open in the next 30 days.

Maybe they can stop the young

Maybe they can stop the young kids car jacking old ladies. Oh, but the Sheriff's deputies don't seem to care about the old ladies. A friend of mine was car jacked Wednesday by two young kids. The deputies that came to the reported incident would not even take my friend home.
