Chateaubelair Police now at new location

Residents and visitors to Chateaubelair wishing to conduct business with the police will have to go to a new location as the police station has been relocated.{{more}}

From June 4, the Police station began operating from a former grocery shop on Main Street, last used as the New Democratic Party’s (NDP) Constituency office. The two-storey structure is owned by the Michael

family of Chateaubelair.

The move took place because the old police station on Barracks Road had to be repaired. In his address at the groundbreaking ceremony for the Questelles Police Station, Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves announced that a number of police stations were to be refurbished including the Chateaubelair station. The cost of repairs

will be over $300,000; however, work has

not yet started.

The old Police station was completed in the early ’80s; during its construction the police and Magistrate’s Court were housed in Chateaubelair Community Centre. The Magistrate’s Court was relocated to the upstairs of the Community Centre over a month ago. (AC)
