New police building to start mid-November
“We have an excellent Police Service in Orangeville, one we’re justifiably proud of,” said Mayor Drew Brown. He continued, “Our investment in a new station represents our long-term commitment to a communitybased police service and recognition of our need to provide a work environment that enhances their ability to meet the needs of our citizens.”
“Placing the new Police building on the Orangeville Hydro site is another example of how the town is creating partnerships and seeking innovative ways to get things done. This arrangement — first suggested by Hydro representatives — will save tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
“Once completed, this new building will symbolize a new chapter in policing here in Orangeville,” stated Chief Freeman.
“On behalf of the Orangeville Police Service, I would like to sincerely thank Mayor Brown for his support and leadership in making this project become a reality and all members of council for the vision they share for this community and their ongoing support for our local police.”
“Our officers and staff look forward to working with our citizens to ensure Orangeville continues to be a safe environment to work in and most importantly to raise a family in.”
The officers hope to be in their new building by late next summer. At that time they plan to host a weekend-long open house so the public can come in to visit and learn more about the police services.
