UMass shows off new Police Station

A boatload of state and local officials sat under the big tent this morning to hear Chancellor Robert Holub sing the praise of the new $12.5 million UMass police station and the men and women who now call it home, as well as the outstanding relationship shared by public safety officials in the town of Amherst and neighboring Hadley.

The new station has its own emergency dispatch center causing UMass to opt out of a regional dispatch Amherst is pursuing. Obviously town officials did not hold any grudges, as Select Board Chair Stephanie O'Keeffe and SB members Diana Stein and Alisa Brewer attended as did acting Town Manager Dave Ziomek, Fire Chief Tim Nelson, Assistant Chief Lindsay Stromgren, APD Captain Jennifer Gundersen and other high ranking members of those departments.

UMPD Chief Johnny Whitehead has a lot to smile about

From what I understand the new facility also has some shiny new holding cells. So is the new rant going to be UMass cops are locking drunks up and depriving them of their "College Experience" as well?
I also will bet if they get repeat offenders in their lock up Mommy and Daddy will be more likely to get a phone call.
