Visiting the Future Pocomoke City Police Department
Friday, March 16, 2012
Front office (top)
and Records Room (bottom)
Of course, changes are always being made. This is the way the building was discribed to me. Regardless of what goes where or who goes where really won't matter. This is just going to be such a remarkable police station I truly don't think anyone will argue.
New carpet has been installed in most of the offices and a crew was in the process of finishing putting down tile. This photo is just a corner of the Chief's office.......I did NOT step in there. One reason, the capet had just been put into place. The other? Bigger shoes than I wear will be in that office and with some awesome responsibility so I'll just wait.
Most of the building now has the walls and trim painted and the floors finished or nealy completed.
This is another office....the "box" is just next door. Hmmm.....
It was sort of difficult to get anywhere in the building on Friday because of the floors being finished. Hey, that's ok with me. Let's get this buiding finished....and it almost is.
More great workers hard at work. It is amazing how many hands it takes to create great things.
This is one of the larger rooms in the new police station. When completed it will have computers and desk space for the officers to do any paperwork that is involved once an arrest has been made. A bench will line the back wall. Once installed I'll tell you who gets seated there. Towards the back of photo is the cell area (left). The cell doors have been hung (I peeked in but I couldn't find the light switch). Since the cells are basically holding cells they will have doors and no bars. You get your bars when you get to Snow Hill, boys!. Please note, those are my words- no one elses.
That's it for this trip. I'll be back soon and maybe those cells will be finished so I can take a good look. From peeking the other day it looks like to me that if you don't like living in a box you better straighten up and give up the life of crime. Those are small cells and if have you bad guys out there are as BIG as you think you are you are not going to fit.
Thanks Councilman Malloy. A special thank you to Chief Sewell and Lt. Strong for the nice conversation on Friday. Chief Sewell, I do promise I will not apply for the job as police officer.
