Officials Break Ground On Berlin Police Station Project

BERLIN – Community leaders gathered Wednesday to celebrate the long-awaited start of the town’s new police station with a groundbreaking ceremony on Decatur Street.

Construction of the new building, which is expected to be complete in early 2018, will enable Berlin’s police force to move out of its cramped space on William Street and into a state-of-the-art facility.

“This is a very important day for the law enforcement community,” Mayor Gee Williams said.

In Berlin, officials have been discussing the need for a new police station for years. The cramped space adjacent to town hall currently that’s been used by the town’s police since the 1960s is not only too small, it doesn’t meet the standards modern-day stations are required to meet.

Not a moment too soon, that town is a hotbed of tabletop-sitting!

3:35 That is exactly what I thought. It is so crowded in the station that they have to sit on tables and desks. That one officer probably got yelled at for sitting on a table and took it out on the next person he saw.

Spending our money to give them nice offices. They don't need offices. They need to be in cars patroling, not sitting around desks.

Next time you need the police, I hope they can't come to help you.
