      Columbia police change geographic policing

      Columbia police administrators say they have fully implemented their plan for geographic policing-which changes the way officers respond to calls.Under the new plan one police captain is responsible for the north side of the city while another captain is responsible for the south side.The department has also created eight beats within the city and says each beat will always have an officer on duty.The changes were initiated after new Police Chief Ken Burton took over in March of last year.
