New PSP Barracks Dedicated in Schuylkill Haven

WAYNE TOWNSHIP, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU-TV)  Troopers gather outside the new state police barracks this morning in Schuylkill County.
In August, the State Police Barracks in Schuylkill Haven moved three miles down the road into a new, larger facility.
   Tuesday morning, troopers celebrated their new barracks with a building dedication.
   
They had been in the previous building for 31 years but say it was time for an upgrade.
   
The new facility has updated equipment and work stations.
   
It's located in Wayne Township and troopers stationed there cover the Western part of Schuylkill County.
"We got updated facilities we're very happy to be here and be in a professional place and have more work room to do our job even better." said Sgt. Fred Krute, Station Commander,
 
   One of the new features of the new building is a car port where Troopers can drive into the barracks itself making it safer and more secure when transferring prisoners
