New police lobby hours to take effect

July 24, 2009

In the Police Department’s latest effort to cutback on costs, business hours at the station will be reduced from a 24 hour open door operation to only 12 hours per day.

Starting Sunday, the Police Department’s lobby and front desk will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. After 7 p.m., the lobby doors will shut, and visitors, who need to do business at the Police Department, must use an emergency phone located outside the building, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.
The emergency phone was installed with a video camera Thursday morning, and calls made on the phone will be answered by police dispatch.
The move to reduce the lobby’s and front desk hours would put two additional, full-time officers on street patrol, he said.
