The first satellite site for the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office at the former Acme Delco Middle School campus is likely to open in March as construction nears completion.

“We are looking to occupy the new Columbus County Sheriff’s Eastern Division Law Enforcement Center in mid-March,” CCSO Chief Deputy Aaron Herring said Monday. “We will be open to the public around the first of April. The largest project left at this time is the parking area, and it is under construction as we speak.”
