COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Columbus Police Department not only wants to purchase new police cars, but they are also looking to add more officers.

Chief Ricky Boren asked for funding for eight new police department positions.

Those positions will include one sergeant and several officers during his budget presentation to city council on Tuesday.

The cost for these positions will total $458,000, but the council's budget review committee must approve the proposal.
