The Binghamton Police Department receives some renovations

Local News

For the first time in 45 plus years the Binghamton Police Department has undergone renovations.

Binghamton Police were showing off the completed work from Phase One of a 1 point 2 million dollar project. 

Upgrades include a total interior renovation with new floors, lighting, HVAC system, and a new entrance area.

There were also security upgrades with new cameras and ballistic glass, new computer workstations, a wall of monitors to view street cameras and more.

Police Chief Joe Zikuski says officers need a workspace that can help them do their job as efficiently as possible. “Just makes the officers feel better about themselves coming to work in a clean new environment. Before this they were coming to work in a  rundown part of this building that was 45 plus years old. Everything was dirty, old and it got recognized that it needed to be upgraded and a great job has been done here.”

Renovations to the locker rooms, gym and roll call room are still underway.

The project is being paid for through a transfer from the City’s Fund Balance and a $190,000 state grant secured by Senator Fred Akshar.
