Inside Rehoboth Police’s New Headquarters
The Rehoboth Police Department has a bigger and better facility to call home.
In May 2020, the Board of Selectmen authorized a payment to the town of Dartmouth for the purchase of a modular building for $225,000.
Dartmouth had housed their police department in the modular unit. The purchase also included all the furniture and light fixtures in the building.
The building is 7000 square feet, double the size of the former police station at 334 Anawan Street, which had long been criticized by officials for a shortage of space and poor health conditions.
“We were sitting on top of each other,” explained Deputy Chief Mark Rossi.
Rossi said with more available space for offices and storage, personnel can “spread out” a bit more.
“It’s a very good facility,” said selectman Dave Perry.
