The Temple City Sheriff's Station is slated for a $7.4-million expansion that will nearly double its size and add a heliport, Supervisor Pete Schabarum has announced. To ease overcrowding at the 36-year-old station, where some employees work in trailers, the Board of Supervisors has approved a two-story addition plus a service building with a heliport. Noise from the helicopters will be minimal because the helipad will be used only during emergencies, Schabarum said.
