College Station police will soon be working longer hours.
Starting in January, officer's shifts will change from eight to 12 hours.
College Station's police chief says the change is necessary to use resources in the most efficient manner.
"We'll have more officers on the street at all times of the day, seven days a week," College Station Police Chief Michael Clancey said.
Clancey says other police departments that have 12 hour shifts are very satisfied.
He expects the same results.
