Nearly $6 million allocated for Corcoran for new headquarters and community facilities
CORCORAN – Today, Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield) joined the Corcoran Police Department and other elected officials for the groundbreaking ceremony of the new police department facility in the City of Corcoran. The new department facility was made possible by funding that Assemblymember Salas secured through the state budget. Assemblymember Salas along with the Corcoran Police Department and local leaders secured nearly $4 million in the 2015-16 state budget and an additional $1.7 million in the 2018-19 state budget that was needed to completely fund the project.
“The groundbreaking is the culmination of a multi-year effort to address a critical public safety need in our community. This new facility provides a 50 year solution that will greatly increase positive community interaction with the police department,” said Assemblymember Salas. “This was a great day for the City of Corcoran and Kings County. This investment will provide the community with an additional meeting space and provide law enforcement with the facility and tools necessary to keep our neighborhoods safe.”
