HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Police Department and the City of Hattiesburg hosted a ribbon cutting for the re-opening of the Lamar Boulevard Substation Thursday.
Reports of misdemeanor status can now be filed at the substation, and citizens can retrieve incident and accident reports. Officers will also be able to log tickets and incidents at the station as well.
The substation will be fully staffed and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
"I think it will save time for the citizens of Hattiesburg to keep them from having to travel from the west side of Hattiesburg all the way to the east side just to do an accident, pick up an accident report, or to file the incident report," Hattiesburg Police Chief Anthony Parker said. "This is just another service we are providing for the citizens of Hattiesburg. We realize that Hattiesburg is/has expanded tremendously. We are all about extending our service to the people."
