Update: Ribbon Cutting at Battle Creek PD Headquarters
by Rachel Hackett
On Wednesday, August 8th, 2018, the Battle Creek Police Department hosted an official ribbon cutting ceremony for their new headquarters. Police Chief Jim Blocker, Mayor Mark Behnke, State Senator Mike Nofs, as well as other elected officials and community leaders attended. Many police officers and their families enjoyed the ceremony as well. After the ceremony, the attendees were invited to tour the building. Those who work in the building were excited to begin moving in. Office workers will begin setting up their work areas on Monday and Tuesday next week.
The new building replaces the police department’s old headquarters across the street at 20 N. Division St., which opened in 1971.
