Renovations to create detention area at Pittsfield Township police department
Renovations approved for the Pittsfield Township police department will improve security, according to an article in the Saline Reporter.
The work will create a detention room to hold prisoners until they can be transported to the county jail, two interview rooms and a processing area, the article said.
Township board members approved a bid for the work, not to exceed $60,000, at a recent meeting. Officials said the current situation, which requires prisoners to be left unattended on a bench in the hallway, is unsafe.
