Brown County Police Dept. Moves To New Location

The Brown County Police Department has moved to a larger location where it will have space for additional storage and training.

Brown County Police Department moved from a shared space inside the Nashville Town Hall into a facility of their own with just more than 4,000 square feet.

Chief Deputy Ben Seastrom says the department can now add additional storage and provide community training.

“As of right now and into next year’s budget we don’t have the money to hire new officers,” he says. “It could be that the demand requires that at the end or middle of next year and that changes for the following year, but as of right now we’re going to stay the exact way that we are.”

The department employs six full-time officers and four reserve officers.
