TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - Workers have started pouring the concrete for the new Tupelo Police Department headquarters.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1eg0M6P) officials hope to begin prepping the other half of the slab in the coming days so the concrete can be poured next week.

The city broke ground on the $10 million, 34,000-square-foot police headquarters in early April. The first 10 weeks of the project were dedicated to giving the two-story building a stable foundation. In mid-June, the concrete pillars began to rise form the ground.

Plans for a new facility date to two city administrations ago, when city leaders issued bonds for a new police headquarters but never took action.
