Beech Grove inaugurates a police station in honor of the late mayor



Beech Grove, Indiana – According to a press release issued by Beck Communications Group, the city of Beech Grove formally unveiled a new police station on Friday at the intersection of Emerson Avenue and Main Street.

The 15,000-square-foot structure was constructed by Beech Grove for about $8.3 million. “This new police station represents a once-in-a-generation investment in public safety in Beech Grove and further supports our commitment to public safety,” said Mayor Dennis Buckley.

“Since 2013, we have increased base officer pay, take home cars and personal safety equipment, while also dedicating other resources to ensure our police officers have everything they need so they – and our community members – are safe,” Mayor Buckley continued.

J. Warner Wiley, a former mayor of Beech Grove who also served as police chief from 1968 to 1978, is recognized with a new police station bearing his name. His family is still a resident of Beech Grove.
