The Machias Police Department has moved from its aging offices and into a larger, more practical space in the Machias Telebusiness Center located on Stackpole Road.
Machias Police Chief Todd Hand first suggested the move at a February selectboard meeting, and the selectboard quickly approved the idea.
“We really did have a need for a bigger, more professional place,” said Hand. “I commend the selectboard for recognizing that and acting on it.”
