When the City of Brecksville built its city hall and the current police station more than 40 years ago, the size of the space was adequate for 25 employees. With nearly 130 employees today, the City outgrew its existing police station, which was part of City Hall. Perspectus was selected to design a facility to accommodate staff growth, to be constructed across the street from the existing City Hall on a sloping 2.4-acre site. The new Regional Dispatch Center services both the City of Brecksville and the City of Independence, with the capacity to service a total of 12 communities.
The two story building features a welcoming entry lobby, Police and Detectives Offices on the Main level and Police Support Functions, interior sally port secured parking, Holding Jail and Firing Range on the Lower Level. An interior parking garage for official police vehicles and processing of non-police vehicles is also be included. Police Design Consultant: Dewberry Architects.
