Freeholder Jonathan Young will join Collingswood officials at a groundbreaking ceremony for the Borough’s new Public Safety facility. The building will house both Collingswood’s Police and Fire Departments at 434 Haddon Avenue.
“This is a critical project for the Borough and we’re excited to see the public servants in the Police and Fire Departments get the upgrades they need,” Young said. “The Freeholder Board is always focused on supporting projects that will improve the public safety of communities and residents.”
The new $10.7 million, 30,000 square foot building is designed to reduce operation and maintenance costs for both police and fire, improve response times, provide better communication and efficiency for both departments, provide increased community visibility and improved accessibility for residents. It will also be home to Collingswood’s Office of Emergency Management with upgraded technology and communication equipment. Expected completion is early 2021.
