California: ‘Storefront’ Police Station Opens at Rancho Bernardo Branch of San Diego Public Library
From Fox 5 San Diego:
The San Diego Police Department Tuesday opened a storefront station at the Rancho Bernardo Library.
The facility will allow officers access to the SDPD’s computer network, allowing them to file reports and handle other paperwork in a location close to their beats. Previously, officers had to write reports in their cars because the police station in the far-flung Northeastern Division is in Rancho Penasquitos, said Councilman Mark Kersey.
“As the city begins to emerge from its fiscal woes, we must improve public safety in our neighborhoods,” said Kersey, who represents the area. “This includes a new location where police can connect with community volunteers and resources to help them protect neighborhoods in north San Diego.”
