HALE- The West Branch Michigan State Police Post (MSP) relocated its detachment from East Tawas to Hale. The East Tawas facility was constructed in the 1930’s and was in a poor state of repair. Despite continual maintenance, it was no longer conducive to modern police practices or technology.
The MSP worked closely with Plainfield Township over a period of many months to secure a 1,700 square foot office suite in the Eagle Pointe Plaza.
“With the east side of Iosco County now being home to four other law enforcement agencies (Iosco Co Sheriff, Oscoda Twp PD, East Tawas PD, and Tawas City PD, it made sense in terms of efficiency to make the move so we can better serve the residents and visitors within our post area.” Said Lt. Mike Brown, Assistant Post Commander for MSP.
The new location was remodeled to suit MSP’s security and technology requirements and became operational on December 20th.
