The new precinct - MARTA's first in the county - is across the street from Southlake Mall at 1115 Mt. Zion Rd in Morrow. It occupies more than 4,000-square feet. MARTA officials say it will further enhance the police department's presence in the county, where MARTA began offering bus service for the first time last year.
Officials from the city of Morrow, including its new mayor Jeff DeTar, along with Clayton Commission Chair Jeff Turner and commissioners Gail Hambrick and Shana Rooks attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday . MARTA Police Chief Wanda Dunham and Clayton Police Chief Michael Register also were also in attendance.
