Sgt. Russell Hefte (left) and Lt. Christopher Nunley (right) Tuesday morning remove the temporary “closed” signage in front of the new Signal Hill Police Station which by nature of its removal serves as an unofficial opening of the facility.
The new Signal Hill Police Station received its first call shortly after the official telephone “switch-over” took place Tuesday morning at 10am. Receiving the call is Ariane Wright, one of the city’s dispatcher/jailers. According to Wright, the city receives between 50 and 100 emergency 911 calls a day.
