To The Daily Sun,
After attending recent Bristol Selectboard meetings, I feel compelled to address the Bristol Police Department facility situation.
In my opinion, an effective and responsive police agency is an ever changing entity. In order to serve the needs and demands of the community that it serves, change is necessary.
Our police facility has become too small and has a deteriorating infrastructure. It no longer serves the needs of a modern law enforcement agency.
The lack of space in our present facility is a serious concern. The deficiencies need to be outlined in order to develop a new facility that would be the best fit for our community.
How do we do that?
The challenge of planning,designing and constructing a new facility can be frustrating and expensive. We need to identify the problems that exist, look at the options that we have, choose the option that will resolve the problems, one that the town can afford and will provide a police facility that will serve our community for many years.
Doing nothing is not a responsible option for the town of Bristol.
