Durham Regional Police cut the ribbon on their new substation in Beaverton on October 15th, just a few doors away from their previous location.
The new address at 412 Bay Street is a completely renovated 126 year old brick home that is just a few feet away from the old location at 454 John Street, which was opened in May 2003. The move was made to facilitate expansion plans of a nearby church. It will not be permanently manned, but there is an emergency telephone by the front door that connects to our switchboard.
Chief Constable Mike Ewles joined Brock Township Mayor Larry O’Connor and Police Services Board Chair Terry Clayton for a ceremonial ribbon cutting using police tape. They were assisted by two officers who are delighted with their new digs: North Division Staff Inspector Brian Fazackerley and Constable Anil Maharaj.
Members of the community and other officers from North Division were also on hand to enjoy some refreshments after the 1 p.m. ceremony.
The 1,800 sq. ft. building will serve as a base of operations for North Division officers as they do work in the Beaverton area. There is also a small office being subleased to the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services for local parole officers.
