Snyder police and Scurry County Sheriff's deputies could soon move into their new law enforcement building. Construction on the building started a little more than a year ago. It will house the police department, sheriff's office and a jail, which is currently their set up but this new facility will be much bigger with newer technology.
"We are going to have more space for the police department side. Right now, we'll have the ability to really take care of people when they come in a lot better and more efficiently. The officers will have more room and space," said Snyder Police Chief Terry Luecke.
The current jail can only house 60 inmates but the new one will hold 148 beds. The new facility will also have a large in house training room where other counties can bring in their officers.
They expect to start moving in sometime in August.
