New police addition has space, ouers DMV services

“The layout is very similar to the previous space,” Stanley Police Chief Lance Weiland said of the new police addi- tion. with ovces at 353 South Broadway. That said, there are improvements. “One of the things I’m ecstatic about is having a secure entry,” Chief Weiland said of the new

police quarters.

Offering DMV services and vehicle inspections along with general police work, the new addition to the City Hall on South Broadway includes two offices (one chief, one officer), a hallway with lockers for police gear, an evidence storage room next to a room with vacuum hood for safe handling of powders, and a garage with enough room to hold three vehicles, one trailer, and a hoist for DMV inspections.

“It’s just more functional for our needs,” Weiland said of the new stomping grounds. So what of the old ones?

Those are being deconstructed at present, with Weiland showing staff torn out walls and ripped up floors in the old police quarters, directly to the south of the new ones. Once things are set, there is a possibility the space will be used to have city meetings, leading to the potential for new photo opportunities to come.

For now, readers will just have to make due with the photos we took of the new police quarters.
