SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Ahead of this week's official de-merger of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, the city of Savannah hosted two ceremonies Tuesday morning, signaling the start of two new police precincts.

The first was a groundbreaking for a brand new Central Precinct off Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between 33rd and 34th streets. The second ceremony held was a ribbon cutting to officially open the new Eastside Precinct off Victory Drive.

A Northwest substation is going in near the airport on Armstead Avenue. The city is currently looking for a location on public property for a Southwest substation.
