PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) – The people of Palmer had a look at their new police station Saturday.
Open house at the new $7 million Palmer police station gave residents of this eastern Hampden County town a chance to check out the improved police facilities their tax dollars paid for.
“Oh it really is nice, we really needed this,” said Sherry Pascale of Palmer. “The other was just so out of date.”
Iris Cardin of Palmer said, “They deserved a lot better than they had, to go to work everyday was not the most exciting thing. I’m sure they’re very happy.”
Palmer’s new police headquarters was built close to Town Hall where for many years, police shared space with other town departments. Chief Robert Frydryk told 22News how happy he is this day finally arrived.
Chief Frydryk said, “We’re, again, very grateful to the voters, the taxpayers in the town of Palmer for building us this building here.”
Coincidentally in the nearby town of Hampden, residents are preparing to vote Monday whether they’ll build their police department a new $3 million facility.
