Judicial/Police/Jail complex will have open house tonight

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Public Works officials are hoping that plans to develop the new Judicial/Police/Jail Complex by Ashley Pond will be one step closer to becoming a reality after they present their design development update to County Council during a special session next week.

The project originated nearly five years ago to address a myriad of problems plaguing the police department and the municipal and district courtroom.

For example, the existing police building was built in 1977 and does not meet current standards.

The municipal and district courtroom has been vacated from the existing Municipal Building and needs to be replaced because it lacks security features such as a metal detector and X-ray machine.

In addition, the operating costs for the police department to transport and monitor inmates for trials would increase if the three courts — Municipal, District and Magistrate — are separated, resulting in the need to hire more police officers.

The project will also address the shortcomings of the existing police building in regard to energy efficiency standards and allowing the highest uses of the building and the police departments’ staff.
