NYSP Troop E Contracts LeFrois to Build 13,000-SF Expansion
Canandaigua, NY – The New York State Police contracted LeFrois Builders and Developers to expand the Troop E headquarters on Rochester Road.
Estimated at a total of $9 million, the expansion will add 13,000 square feet to the Troop E headquarters.
The NYSP initiated the expansion in response to the growth and technological advancements needed in their current 50-year-old facility. “Criminal investigations have grown over the years,” comments Troop E Commander Major Craig Hanesworth. “The necessity to have state-of-the-art facilities and a larger facility to help those investigations go hand in hand.”
The expansion will provide additional space and implement advanced technology for their Forensics Identification Unit (FIU), Computer Crime Unit (CCU), and Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU).
The expansion will also increase the capacity of their evidence vault to 2,000 square feet. The new vault will help to better catalogue and retrieve evidence collected from 10 counties in the Finger Lakes.
“We’re excited about the new center being built,” says Hanesworth. “It shows the commitment by the State Police to the law enforcement efforts here in the Finger Lakes region.”
The groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 11:00 AM with Major Hanesworth, Ontario County Sheriff Phil Povero, Town of Farmington Supervisor Peter Ingalsbe, and the owners of LeFrois among others. “We’re honored to be working for the fine men and women of New York State Police,” says John LeFrois. “They do such a wonderful job and we hope this building enhances their efforts for the future.”
