For years, the Hallsville Police Department operated out of a single office room inside City Hall.
But not for long.
This morning, they broke ground for a 3,000 square foot Police Department.
The Police Department says their looking forward to not being so crammed together.
"We have all the officers and the municipal court clerk and the city secretary in this one office space so we get along pretty well...we're a close knit group, literally!" said Chief Greg Scott.
Hallsville is also building a memorial for local veterans near the new police department.
The new facility is expected to be built by April of next year.
