JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Jefferson Township officials Tuesday broke ground on a new two-story addition for the police department.
“The original municipal building and police headquarters was built in 1972 and has had no significant renovations to it since,” officials said.
The Police Headquarters space was initially designed for 30 police personnel; today, the department has 37 plus staff for a total of almost 50. Mayor Wilsusen started working on this project as a young police officer back in 1993, the project went through 5-6 different revisions since then, so we are glad to see this finally come to a realization.
“It is long overdue and will give the officers a new locker room area, including a female locker area, a safe & proper prisoner processing area, training area, and adequate evidence processing & storage,” officials said.
The $1.1 million project came in under estimate, and should be completed by November.
