Sheriff’s office awaits word about crime lab

It may be a few more months before the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office gets the go-ahead to move into the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s former crime lab.

All signs point to a transfer, but the best thing to do is wait until the General Assembly convenes in January, Chief Deputy David Davis told the Bibb County Commission on Monday.

The General Assembly has the authority on the matter.

While a temporary agreement prior to then is a possibility, one is not imminent, Davis said.

The sheriff’s office hopes to use the crime lab, located at the corner of Oglethorpe and Second streets, as a place to drop off and process evidence.
