LAKELAND, Ga. (WTXL)--The Lanier County Sheriff's Office could possibly take over the City of Lakeland's police department.
If it happens the police department could become a division of the sheriff's office.
Lanier County Sheriff Nick Norton and Lakeland Mayor Bill Darsey agree it would be a move to save money for county and city residents.
Darsey says it's a long way from becoming a reality.
They'll be some discussion about at it the Lakeland city council meeting on Tuesday night at 5:30.
