Long Description:
The East Providence Police Department station is at 750 Waterman Avenue in East Providence, Rhode Island. The building was named “Major Alister C. McGregor Public Safety Complex” on December 27, 2011, in honor of the officer who was inadvertently killed during a training exercise a decade earlier. (Here is a brief synopsis of the event.) A memorial for all deceased police officers -- including three who died while on duty -- is at the southwest corner of the station. (Waymark Code: WM160GE)

From their website, which also offers dozens of links to additional information:

The East Providence Police Department is comprised of five major organizational components including the Office of the Chief of Police, the Patrol Division, the Detective Division, the Services Division, and the Operations Division. Numerous specialized units such as the Traffic Unit, Juvenile Unit, Prosecution Unit, Vice Unit, Training Unit, Community Policing Unit, and the Office of Professional Standards and School Resource Officers work within these divisions to provide a wide array of law enforcement services. The Department is currently authorized to maintain 99 sworn officers and 23 civilian personnel. The chief of police is responsible for the overall operation of the police department. The chief of police works with the administrative staff to set goals and objectives and ensures their realization by planning, organizing and directing personnel and resources to that end. The chief reports directly to the mayor.

Type: Main Office (HQ Building)

I have had NO problems with taking photos of Police stations but please respect the fact that some services may be nervous about having their photo taken and inquire as to why... I have found that once things are explained they are more than happy to let me photograph the building, crest, chief... (they are people too!)
