Palmer's residents want police station

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Some folks in Palmer's Crossing hope the City of Hattiesburg will put its next police substation in that area.  Some members of the Palmer's Crossing Community Action Team met with city and county officials tonight, to see if a new substation could be placed in the Hinton Community Center.

That building is owned by Forrest County.

City and county officials say they're open to the idea.

Hattiesburg currently has 3 police sub-stations throughout the city.
