Police Department Moves Into Building Expansion

It's moving day at the Tyler Police Department as the nearly $4 million building project is almost complete. 

Jail trustys helped move the furniture that's staying at the department. The current police building has become more crowded as the force grows, and now the building expansion will give much more office space, room for equipment, and even a gymnasium for officers.

Chief Gary Swindle says his officers are excited that the wait is almost over.

"The big part is over. The new construction part is the hardest part, so the rest of it is going to be a remodel of the old building.  Again we're very excited about it," he says.

The entire police complex will be renovated, and all construction is scheduled to be complete by the end of June.
