    Work is progressing on the new New Britain police station.

    It has taken eight years, but New Britain celebrated the topping off of the city's new police station on Wednesday.

    Mayor Timothy Stewart and Gov. Dannel Malloy signed beam on the $35-million-dollar, four-story building at Main and Chestnut streets.

    The project is part of the Jobs Funnel Program that prepares qualified residents who are out of work or under-employed for construction jobs and a career track in the building trades industry.

    The building is expected to open in about a year and officials hope the new police headquarters will trigger a larger scale renovation of downtown New Britain.
