City of Springfield
Police Headquarters Study
Civic + Cultural | Municipal:
Justice | Public Safety
As the community of Springfield continues to develop and grow, so does the need for additional space for the Police Headquarters to effectively carry out their community-focused mission. The Lavallee Brensinger Architects | Architects Design Group team was selected to perform a detailed gap analysis and spatial needs assessment to determine the current and future needs of the Police Department. The Police Department is currently housed in a late 1960â€™s vintage 90,000 SF two story structure in similar condition to its original design. The facility does not meet the departmentâ€™s current and future needs, and does not address modern urban policing methods.
Using situational adjacency studies, our team is planning and designing this facility in order to maximize operational efficiency. Many areas of this police facility will be given special design consideration including: public lobby, community meeting room, interior corridors, dispatch, records, investigative services, patrol operations, armory, SWAT/tactical ready room, briefing and muster, locker and shower rooms, physical agility rooms, community policing, and victim interview/waiting rooms.
