“The new headquarters for our Frederick Police Department is a critical need for our community, and a top priority for my administration,” O’Connor said in the statement. “This project aligns with our city’s strategic plan to maintain a safe and vibrant community and I am looking forward to taking the next steps in this process as we move closer to bringing this long-awaited project to fruition.”

“Tonight’s approval of Waynesboro Construction as the company that will design and build FPD’s new home is an exciting step in a long journey,” Police Chief Jason Lando added.

The process began in 2017, with a Space Needs Assessment from the police department. The city is projecting that the new headquarters will be operational by December 2024.

A 17-year-old girl working at a hotel in South Massachusetts got quite the shock while delivering room service this week, authorities said. 

The girl was bringing food to a room occupied by 46-year-old Tarrence Brown, of Hyde Park, Plymouth Police said on Wednesday, Nov 23 on Facebook. When she opened the door, Brown was wearing an open bath robe clearly showing his genitals, police said.

When an officer responded to the scene, Brown still had the robe open, police said. The officer then asked Brown to “put it away before the handcuffs go on.” Brown was arrested for open and gross lewdness, police said.
