SCITUATE, R.I. (WLNE) - It's not just 'shovels full of dirt' at this groundbreaking in Scituate. It's what police call their new beginning.

The building of the new police station on Chopmist Hill Road comes after

their original station was deemed too unhealthy for people to work in - filled with mold, lead, and asbestos. Officers have been working out of trailers since the fall.

Council President John Mahoney points fingers at the previous administration

that he says didn’t address these issues in 2014 when an inspector labeled the building as ‘critical’.

In January, voters approved a $1.7 million bond to build the new station. They plan to move in around November.
