Brookhaven’s Police Department will set up a substation in an apartment complex on Buford Highway.

City officials said officers are preparing to open the office at the Marquis Terrace Apartments, located at 3547 Buford Highway, within a few weeks.

“This will provide an excellent opportunity for officers to interact with the community, build partnerships and be more proactive in crime prevention,” Chief Gary Yandura said in a news release. “This will be the first substation in Brookhaven.”

According to the city, the substation will provide a space for officers to hold meetings, write reports and conduct other operations outside of the department’s temporary locations at Brookhaven’s municipal court and city hall.

Marquis, which owns nine properties on Buford Highway, is providing the space at no cost to the city, officials said.
