Salinas Police Service Headquarters is Nearly Complete

 The new Salinas Police Service Headquarters is a $56 million project for the city of Salinas that will replace the current police headquarters, originally built in 1958. The new police facility will consist of two buildings; a two story,44,352 square foot Headquarters (built to the highest life safety standards) will house Administration, Investigations, Patrol and Support Staff. There will also be a community room opening to the adjacent parking lot to help facilitate community events. A second, 24,878 square foot support building will include state of the art evidence storage areas, forensic laboratory and firearms training facility.

The builders made good the promise of obtaining our Temporary Certificate of Occupancy on January 28th! What this means, is that we are still on the original scheduled timeline for completion/move-in. At the end of January furniture started being delivered and installed in the Headquarters and subsequently in the Support Building. As areas of furniture get completed, our IT staff will follow and begin setting up individual workstations.

Setting up desktops, and the network itself, will occupy the month of February, while the remaining on-site work continues. While having met the first stage of project completion, there is still a great deal of work that will be going on during this time.

Externally, gates still need to be installed along with landscape and completion of the parking lot that borders Alisal Street. Internally, TV’s, modems, security cameras, window blinds, and a great deal of finish work is underway.

If all continues to follow its current path, it is expected personnel will begin moving in early March with and anticipated opening to the public early April.
