Webster Police Station
The Webster police department was housed in the southern end of a single story bearing wall, masonry and steel framed building with exterior brick veneer constructed in 1969. The building was shared with the Fire Department. Located on a corner lot, there was no room for expansion and the layout no longer provided sufficient space for efficient operation due to overcrowding, small offices and improper adjacencies. Six potential locations were investigated. The committee agreed with the recommendation to build a new 22,000 SF station on Main Street. Following demolition of an existing building, construction of the steel framed brick building began. It is designed to conform to Main Street architecture, similar to police stations in surrounding towns and will accommodate 40 full-time officers and the Emergency Operations Center that is housed in the basement of the existing fire/rescue station.
Once the police department moved into the new building, the existing building was renovated and updated to meet code requirements to satisfy the needs of the Fire and Rescue Departments.
