In Kemper County, The Kemper County Sheriff’s Office is officially taking over for all law enforcement responsibilities in Scooba.
The takeover became official on Tuesday this week.
Following, the Scooba Police Department’s disbandment in October.
The Sheriff’s Office had already been acting as law enforcement part-time for Scooba, due to the Police Department not having enough coverage.
The Kemper County Sheriff’s Office stated that although they cover all law enforcement calls for Scooba and Dekalb, they are still serving and protecting all areas of Kemper County.
