Six Police Division Stations
This project will construct six new permanent Police Stations in Westover Division*, Hickory Grove Division, South Division, University City Division, Independence Division and Northwest Division. Four of these facilities will replace temporary and leased facilities currently being used, and two will provide stations for the newly established South and Northwest divisions. These new facilities will accommodate the current and future needs of CMPD by meeting the following criteria as established in CMPD's strategic plan for facilities:
Properly sized for current and future staffing needs;
Prominently located in a neighborhood as an anchor to the community that encourages revitalization;
Easily accessible to the public by locating on a main thoroughfare that is pedestrian-friendly and served by public transportation; and
Creation of a "brand" for CMPD that is easily recognizable by the public while retaining an appearance that is adapted well to the surrounding community.
*$10.5 million in non-bond debt financing for the Westover Division Station was appropriated in FY2014.
