Police Headquarters

Plantation, FL

Due to population increases and annexations to the City of Plantation, its police force doubled in size since the original 34,000 SF police station was built in the early 1980s. Our firm tackled the space issues and advanced technology changes the department was facing. We explored programming needs with the police force and city fathers and created a phased master plan to facilitate the work while still enabling existing operations 24/7. The solution involved the construction of a second 34,000 SF structure to be completed on an eight-phased timetable. Included in the new building was a sally port, holding cell facility, fitness center with locker room, roll call room, interview rooms, report writing rooms, and offices for Patrol, Street Crime, Traffic, and Administrative personnel. A community room and open, inviting lobby reflected a new engagement policy with the public.
