Holliston police sending "guests" out of town

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 6, 2007 03:31 PM



The Police Department has made a smooth transition to its new temporary location at the old Flagg School, even though the department is operating without jail cells, officials say.

"It's working out very well," Lieutenant Keith Edison said recently.

Police will be stationed at the old school on Linden Street until the police station on Washington St. has been demolished and rebuilt sometime by late 2008.

As of last week, Edison said officers had made only one arrest since moving to the temporary location on May 21. That prisoner was transferred to a cell in Framingham, and Edison said that police in Ashland and Sherborn have also agreed to house Holliston prisoners as needed.
