NORTH HAVEN — As an $18 million police station renovation begins next month, many police operations, including dispatch and records, will be relocated to the Town Hall Annex.
Police will move operations Jan. 9.
Chief Thomas McLoughlin said on Tuesday, Dec. 19 that the Linsley Avenue police station, built in 1965, is starting to show its age and wear. The renovation is expected to add 40 years to the building’s life.
Police have outgrown the space, he added. The project includes a 10,000-square-foot addition on the building’s west side for new sally port, lockup and garage.
The renovated station’s space will be reorganized, McLoughlin said, to keep public access on first floor and reserve the second floor for police only.
The project includes $4 million for a town-wide public safety radio system that will tie emergency services to schools, replacing the current 25-year-old system.
Construction is expected to last 13 months.
