Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Brett Granville, Andrew Conlon, and Diana Christodaro, along with County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, Sheriff Patrick O’Flynn, District Attorney Sandra Doorley, Greece Police Chief Patrick Phelan, and former Greece Police Chief Gerald Phelan for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of the newly constructed Precinct 1 Police Headquarters.
The new Precinct 1 Police Headquarters is located at the Greece Town Hall Campus. The new facility will provide much needed upgrades and space to Greece Police employees. The nearly 30,000 square footage of new space contains holding cells, an evidence storage area, a training facility and an interrogation room. Additionally, the new department will house both patrol and investigation units.
The name of the new Precinct 1 Police Headquarters, which reads Gerald D. Phelan Police Headquarters, was named in honor of former Greece Police Chief Gerald D. Phelan. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Supervisor Bill Reilich presented Gerald and his wife, Kathy, with a framed picture of the new Precinct 1 Police Headquarters.
“What a proud day for the Town Board and I to be able to dedicate this building in honor of all of the residents of the Town of Greece. I am so honored to hand the keys over to Chief Patrick Phelan and the dedicated officers of the Greece Police Department,” said Supervisor Bill Reilich. “Additionally, we are honored to have named this new facility after former Greece Police Chief Gerald Phelan, who served the Greece Community as police chief for nearly 20 years”.
