PSB Update: Police on the move today; new safe spot for transactions

This afternoon, the Southborough Police Department will begin officially operating out of the new Public Safety Building. 

On Friday, Chief Kenneth Paulhus issued a release with the news. The relocation is scheduled for 3:00 pm, today, Tuesday, September 3rd. While the building will be open to visitors who have business there, don’t go looking for a tour just yet. Tours are still being held off for the October 26th Grand Opening. (Reminder, there is also a ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for next Monday, September 9th at 7:30 am.)

I followed up with Paulhus to ask about relocation of the Internet Safety Transaction Zone. Four years ago, the SPD began promoting a safe space for the community to exchange money and goods agreed upon over the internet (Craig’s List, online yard sales, etc.) 

The chief believed that eventually they will designate individual spots and create some signage for it. In the meantime, the lobby and general parking lot are available as a safe area. There will be plenty of cameras and personnel around.

Remember, if you do head over the SPD, you’ll need to use the driveway on the left. The right entrance is for emergency vehicles only.

Here’s the SPD release:

On, 9/3/2019, at 3:00 p.m., the Southborough Police Department will officially assume operations from the new Public Safety Complex located at 32 Cordaville Road. Signs posting the move will be on site at the old building located at 19 Main Street. Anyone having business at the Police Station should park in the front area adjacent to Choate Field, and check in through the front lobby for assistance. The public access driveway nearest to the soccer field on the left (facing the building) should be used.

We are asking the public for their patience as we adjust to our beautiful new home. Please mark October 26th on your calendar for our Grand Opening, which will include tours of the complex. There will be no access to interior portions until that time.
