SAVANNAH, GA (September 8, 2011): Downtown Precinct officers of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are moving into a second temporary facility while their permanent location undergoes repairs from a leak.


The Precinct 2 officers were forced to vacate their rented office at 102 East Lathrop Avenue several months ago when a leak in the roof and ceiling brought on health hazards.


The precinct temporarily moved into several buildings, including space in the Savannah Civic Center.


Officers spent Tuesday moving most of the office into 115 East Lathrop, a building across Lathrop from the permanent location. They hope to complete the move by the end of today. The temporary location is expected to be used for up to three months while a new roof is installed on the permanent building.


The Downtown Precinct still can be reached by telephone at (912) 651-6990.
