What's New With The "New" Police Department- Pocomoke City
In May of 2011 the Pocomoke City Mayor and Council took steps in purchasing the former Delmarva Auto Collision building to be the new home for the Pocomoke City Police Department.
Councilman Malloy and I traveled to the opposite end of Market Street so I could see first hand what was going on inside to prepare for this big move the police department will be making in just a few months.
The Pocomoke City Police Department is currently located on Second Street, in the former National Guard Armory, where it has been for many years and I can only remember one other possibility of it ever being anywhere else and that was on Willow Street.... but that's a maybe.
Anyway, the new facility is large and certainly seems to have ample space for the offices that are needed to operate a police department. Plus, it has to be more energy efficient and will certainly have better parking!
A Beauchamp Construction crew was busy working when we stopped by. Quite hard to tell the ins and outs of the whole facility right now but this is going to such a wonderful improvement over the conditions of the current police department. Wall board has been put up and wiring has been run with still a ways to go but certainly won't take much longer.
Energy efficient and brand new on the inside, the new Pocomoke City Police Department headquarters will be something Pocomoke City can be proud of......Just as proud as they are of their Police Department.
