City to Open Police Substation on East Side
This Saturday, Mayor Bill Finch, Police Chief Joseph Gaudett and City Councilmembers Lydia Martinez and Manuel Ayala will celebrate the opening of new police substation in the City’s East Side.
Located at 1335 East Main Street, the new substation is a a direct answer to community concerns regarding a more visible police presence in this neighborhood.
“Community engagement and quality of life concerns are two priorities of the Police Department’s recently announced ‘Safe City-Safe Streets’ initiative,” said Mayor Finch. “This new substation will address both of these areas for our East Side residents.”
The event, which will be held at 12 noon on Saturday, is open to the public.
