The new public safety facility meets the needs of modern police and fire departments. Police programming includes secure prisoner processing and detention area, a roll call room, secure evidence processing and storage, and offices. The fire program includes five drive-thru apparatus bays, separate decon, scba, and medical supply storage areas, living quarters, and offices. The two departments share a public entrance, training room, dispatch center, and fitness area.
The new public safety facility is located on a site shared with the existing library and a new town hall, which was designed by our consultant Turowski2 Architecture of Marion, Massachusetts.
