South DeKalb County will get another police precinct.

The DeKalb County Police Department is opening a mini precinct at River and Flakes Mill roads, spokesman Officer Jason Gagnon said.

“They are in that location to better serve the citizens in south DeKalb,” Gagnon said.

Gagnon said the expense is minimal because the county already owns the building and uses it as a fire station. No additional officers will be hired, but officers from other areas will be moved to staff the new precinct.

“We’re looking at our manpower and how to best utilize the staffing we have,” Gagnon said.

This will be the county’s sixth precinct.
