HAMILTON, Miss. (WCBI) — Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell hopes a new substation in the town of Hamilton will help residents feel a little safer.

The sheriff’s department cut the ribbon on a new substation Thursday afternoon at the corner of  Hamilton Road and old Highway 45.

The mobile unit will be staffed full-time with a deputy.

Sheriff Cantrell says his department will  also increase patrols in the area. He adds, “In the time we are living and you know… just like the shooting in Tupelo a couple of weeks ago…we want the people of Hamilton to know that we are going to be down here to protect them.”

The substation is the first in Monroe County.
