The Dothan Police Department could soon be expanding.
Chief Greg Benton will ask the personnel board to okay an additional position for a police captain at the next board meeting.
Right now Dothan Police Department has three captains for its patrol services, investigative services and administrative bureau.
The administrative bureau has two divisions, communications and the detention facility.
Benton says police would add a captain for the administrative bureau to help ease the workload.
If approved, the new captain will also be responsible for writing grants and the accreditation process.
