DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) — With the hope of renovating the town’s police station, Dartmouth Police Chief Robert Szala says a ballot question will appear on the annual town election ballot in April 2017, not in the general election vote in November.

The advisory board, town administrator, and chief felt a question on the November ballot was, “too ambitious and would result in a rushed decision.”

Members of the advisory board are trying to determine a new location for the department.

According to a news release, Chief Szala is, “committed to finding a safe, healthy and efficient work environment for the police department now and into the future.”

The advisory board and chief will be in front of the Select Board on August 8 to discuss the next steps for the project.
