Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Brett Granville, Andrew Conlon, and Diana Christodaro, along with County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo and Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn for the official ground breaking ceremony of the new Greece Police Headquarters. This project is a culmination of a year of planning to create a new $9 million state of the art facility.
The new addition to the Greece Town Campus will be located at 6 Vince Tofany Boulevard. Construction on the new facility is set to begin shortly after the groundbreaking with an anticipated completion date in early 2017. The new facility will help provide much needed upgrades to an already outdated Police Headquarters. The nearly 30,000 square footage of new space will contain holding cells, an evidence storage area, a training facility and an interrogation room. Additionally, the new department will house both patrol and investigation units.
“While our crime rates are low, public safety has always been one of my top priorities. This historic ground breaking ensures that the safety and well-being of all residents is taken into account when planning the future of our town,” said Supervisor Bill Reilich. “The new state of the art facility will help to deliver needed upgrades and improvements for our police force and expand overall productivity. The Town is excited to finally give the Greece Police Department and its residents all the upgrades needed to ensure the safety of our town well into the future.”
