New estimates put the cost of a proposed police station in Medford at about $20 million. That’s about $8 million higher than earlier estimates.

A study presented Thursday to the city council said the police station should be designed to meet the needs of the department for the next 20 years.

The Mail Tribune reports Police Chief Tim George told the council the current station located in City Hall is dysfunctional. He says criminals are escorted past employees and witnesses, and lack of space makes it difficult to interview informants.
