  • Belleville breaks ground for new police station

    Belleville police chief William Clay talks about the need for the new police station. By the spring of next year, Belleville’s police department is set to have a new station. City officials on Friday held a groundbreaking ceremony for Belleville’s new $8.99 million police station. The city plans to move its police department to 720 W. Main St., the current Bank of Belleville building, next spring. The Bank of Belleville is moving to a new location along South Illinois Street and is expected to be open in early August. The new station will be roughly 44,000 square feet, which will have space for officers to train, and will bring the police department into a state of the art facility, said Mayor Mark Eckert. “This is a big improvement.” Features of the new facility is set to include a forensics lab, dispatch center, sally port to transfer prisoners, and a 60-person community classroom.
