    A Rhode Island town has started moving police dispatchers into a temporary trailer after the police department's aging headquarters was found to have mold and asbestos. 

    Scituate Police Chief Donald Delaere tells the Providence Journal that the move began Monday. 

    Delaere also wants to move officers into a community room at a fire station. He says prisoners that need to be held overnight can be sent to nearby departments. 

    A consultant told the town council that some evidence at the police station is covered in so much mold that it is unrecognizable.
