HOLYOKE, Mass. (WGGB) — The City of Holyoke unveiled a new community policing substation Tuesday.
This station on High Street is the third such station in the Paper City.
Mayor Alex Morse says it’s all part of their effort to build relationships with residents. “I think this sends a message that we want to get our officers out of their patrol cars and onto the streets, walking, on their bikes and in substations like this and be resources to the community,” he says.
The community policing effort in Holyoke was initiated by Chief James Neiswanger, who says it’s another piece in building positive relationships with residents and businesses in the city.
