If you missed Wilton Police Department's tour in October, there's another opportunity to visit headquarters. Head to the Department this Saturday, November 13, 2021 between 9 am and 12 pm.
Police explain that the tours are being offered in conjunction with the work of the Police-Town Hall Building Committee that was charged with studying the deficiencies and needs of the police headquarters. The committee subsequently made a recommendation to the Board of Selectmen for a new headquarters in front of the existing police building.
Wilton Police Department was built in 1974 for a police force of fewer than thirty officers. Today, there are forty-five officers and four full-time civilian employees. Police say that the infrastructure is obsolete and degrading requiring constant maintenance and repairs.
The Board of Selectmen is expected to recommend a plan to the voters at a special town meeting in early 2022.
The committee encourages residents to take advantage of the tours and to learn about the building's challenges firsthand.
