In the last several months, the Glasgow Police Department has relocated to a new office just down the street and the Glasgow Fire Department and 911 Dispatch Center have used resources within to renovate the old police department.  During each of their annual reports at the Glasgow City Council meeting last night, Police Chief Guy Turcotte, Fire Chief Tony Atwood, and 911 Dispatch Director Beverly Harbison all reiterated how proud they were of their new facilities.  Councilman M.D. Armstrong also made the public aware that this wasn’t something that happened overnight, but rather a process in the making since Mayor Darrell Pickett was in office.

Police Chief Turcotte also gave statistical information on the year 2013, citing that DUI’s were down 19% while Stolen Vehicles and shoplifting were both up nearly 20%.  He also credited his department for a job well done.

Also, Fire Chief Atwood also added that his department is above the national average in overall fire runs versus other runs, while they are significantly lower as it relates to EMS runs.  Atwood said it is still important to be able to respond quickly because every second counts.  He, too, commended his staff.
