The State approved $2 million for the building and the building will house more than a dozen State Police personnel from detectives to patrol officers. The District Attorney's office which was currently in four different buildings will bring together 100 of their personnel 166 Main Street which is right across from Brockton District Court.
Crime is down in Brockton and now with a building that will house the DA office and the State Police in one place will help with faster processing of information and save time for State detective to drive from the various barracks they were stationed in and be at one place and shortening response time for State detectives to crime scenes and ultimately have an impact on crime and also the economic factor of over 100 people working in one building and using local business services close by.
The perception of seeing police going into a building downtown and having that will hopefully allieve some fears for local businesses and people doing shopping downtown.
This is another win for Baker administration, our local representatives, DA Cruz and the Carpenter administration.

ONE OF THE BEST WRITTEN ARTICLE ABOUT THE BROCKTON DESAL PLANT AND HISTORY
When a prolonged drought threatened its future, the financially strapped city invested millions in a state-of-the-art facility that would turn saltwater fresh—and save the city in the process. That was the plan, anyway.

With immigration being such a hot issue and illegal immigration being the controversy that started when the current Representative for the 10th Plymouth District united a fire storm by Rep. DuBois posted on Facebook that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was planning a raid in Brockton, Massachusetts. She included a warning, which read, "If you are undocumented don’t go out on the street. If there is a knock on the door of your house and you don’t know who it is, don’t open the door. I ask you to be careful." This has garnered attention from around the country.
DuBois stands by what she did, even stating that she was helping immigrants to know their rights and was letting ICE know that their supposed raid in Brockton was compromised.
Michele DuBois is no stranger to taking on Big Government and as always been a staunch supporter of People's rights and helping people when the Government has overstepped their power. As Ward 6 Councilor in Brockton back in August 2010. Councilor DuBois took on the Water Commission when they were back billing residents up to 10 years for broken water meters that were given false readings. She helped launch one of the largest protest at Brockton City Hall dubbed The Brockton Water Party to contest the illegal billing practices of the Brockton Water Department at the time headed by DPW Commissioner Mike Thoreson.
Some residents literally received a $100,000 water bill. Ayana Cato of Brockton received the largest back billed water bill for $100,000. Many other residents including Robert Ford was billed for water he didn't use and Councilor DuBois stood up against The Commission and also the Mayor at the time Linda Balzotti and fought to get the water meters replaced and was instrumental in helping residents receive rebates and helped put in a system that this would never happen again.
Many in the community have taken the stance that immigration done legally is fine but illegal immigration is wrong and Robert Taylor is running for the 10th Plymouth District Seat.So State Representative DuBois has said on record, She is against illegal immigration and criminal and doesn't support that but for people who have been in this country and work 2 or 3 jobs and have abided by the laws and have families, these are the people she is fighting for. Time will tell but one thing Michele is no stranger to tackling issues and conceived injustices in favor of doing what is right for the overall benefit of all constituents in her district.

Donald Donaldson came to us and was professional and gave us an estimate within the budget. The crew started in September and they were also very professional and answered all questions and usually you here crews swearing and yelling and loud music. None of that, I never seen a crew work so hard with determination and such detail.
We had the whole second floor apartment remodeled from complete tear down of walls and ceilings to changing all the plumbing lines and electrical.
