Our Public Safety team does some of the hardest work in our City. They fight fires, respond to medical emergencies, keep the peace, enforce the law, and take care of the most vulnerable members of our community. When we need them, they are there for us. In return, our first responders deserve to work in a facility that meets their needs. Some of our firefighters currently work in a fire station that is one of the oldest in the entire country. Our police officers have worked out of a "temporary" location for 45 years. It is time for our City to care for our first responders as they care for us. My administration is excited to embark on this project and to build a new home for our Police and Fire Departments. Please join us as we work together to build the Taunton Public Safety Complex!
