Staff Reports,
06:12PM / Thursday, May 17, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Police Station was temporarily evacuated after a suspicious package was received in the mail.
 
Police say at 11:02 a.m. on Thursday a resident brought a package into the station. The building was immediately evacuated, and emergency operations were implemented.
 
"In a relatively short period of time, law enforcement was able to definitively determine the device was not a threat. This was further confirmed in collaboration with the Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad and the Massachusetts Department of Fire Service Hazardous Materials Team. Shortly after this determination was made the public safety building was re-opened and police, fire, and dispatch personnel re-entered the building," North Adams Police wrote in a Facebook post.
 
"During the incident, the department of public safety maintained continuity of operations by transferring critical emergency services to another location."
