LAWRENCE, MASS. (WHDH) - Police broke ground Tuesday for a new station in Lawrence.

“The men and women of the Lawrence Police Department have shown up each day, each week, year after year, and now decade after decade,” Vasque said. “Providing professional quality service to the community.”

The new station will feature “the latest equipment and technology” as well as a large community room to make the building “community-friendly,” to better serve their residents, Lawrence Police said.
