Demolition is now expected to begin on the interior of the site of Belleville’s new police station.
The new station will be built in the former Belleville Water and Veridian Connections building at the corner of College Street and Sidney Street.
The last of those staff members in the two offices moved out last weekend.
They are now at the new location in the city’s building on Wallbridge Crescent, which has already been renovated.
The College-Sidney site will be one-and-a-half times the size of the present police station.
The interior of the building will be demolished and re-built to the specifications of the police service.
There will also be an addition to expand the building at the nine acre site.
The cost of construction and associated fees for Belleville’s new police station are expected to be a total $21 million, with another $2 million required for IT and communications.
