A Morehead police official says he can’t wait until his department gets into its new facility.

It’s hoped the MPD, along with the city’s fire department, will move into their combined structure as early as next year. Morehead officials are currently trying to secure the site for the $4,000,000 project.

According to MPD Captain Kyle Callahan, it will be nice for his officers to work in a modern facility after spending the last several years in a deteriorating building that was constructed in the 1930’s and used for several decades as the town’s post office…

Morehead’s planned police and fire station will include several modern amenities, including a shared training area.
