is in the heart of the city you're on a
0:07
major thoroughfare the freeway
0:09
of independence boulevard it's such a
0:12
great place to work if you're a young
0:13
officer
0:14
that you can get to experience a little
0:16
bit of everything that goes on around
0:17
here
0:17
[Music]
0:21
for our officers it's extremely proud
0:23
for them to have a division office that
0:25
sits in a position of prominence
0:27
it looks like a police officer it is
0:29
reflective of the community there's
0:31
community input
0:32
all the way down to the artwork this is
0:34
a culmination of a lot of
0:36
commitment from city council our
0:39
community
0:40
and everyone really wanting us to have a
0:43
really good home this building really
0:44
gives our
0:45
employees a sense of pride somewhat of a
0:48
home away from home
0:49
we know that our officers are now closer
0:52
to the community
0:53
it's positioned in a way that our
0:55
officers can be as responsive
0:57
to the needs of the community as quickly
0:59
as possible
1:00
as you said doors the church are open
1:02
the doors of our buildings are open and
1:04
we have community space within the
1:05
buildings we always put large conference
1:07
rooms
1:08
our expectations that we've able to not
1:10
only serve our citizens there
1:12
but commune with our citizens there one
1:14
of the chiefs core four officer
1:16
employee wellness is something we are
1:18
really
1:20
really prioritizing we're creating an
1:22
environment to where
1:24
our employees are going to be motivated
1:25
to come to work and excel
1:27
and understand that the community that
1:30
we serve
1:31
really depends on them to provide
1:33
quality service
1:39
we do have a responsibility to equip our
1:41
officers with the tools necessary to do
1:43
their jobs
1:44
and it's a facility like this that's
1:45
state of the art that helps us
1:47
fulfill that obligation that
1:49
responsibility to our officers
1:51
residents and businesses alike can
1:53
expect to
1:54
feel that we are part of the community
1:57
they know that this is their facility
1:59
just as much as it is
2:01
cmpd it just in part goes with the
2:04
entire concept and vision that we have
2:07
that we are part of the community just
2:09
like a resident that lives here
2:11
just like a business owner that that
2:13
opens his business here

SIX POLICE DIVISION STATIONS

Program overview​

This project is constructing 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 replace temporary and leased facilities currently being used, and two provide stations for the newly established South and Northwest divisions. These new facilities accommodate the current and future needs of CMPD by meeting the following criteria as established in CMPD's strategic plan for facilities:

  1. Properly sized for current and future staffing needs; 

  2. Prominently located in a neighborhood as an anchor to the community that encourages revitalization;

  3. Easily accessible to the public by locating on a main thoroughfare that is pedestrian-friendly and served by public transportation; and

  4. 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.​ 

Program funding and cost information
