St. Petersburg Police Closer to Getting a New Home
A demolition ceremony started clearing the way for a new police headquarters. The actual demolition is scheduled for Aug. 1.
ST. PETERSBURG – City officials have approved the initial construction details for St. Petersburg’s new police headquarters.
They also held a demolition ceremony at the police annex and training building to mark the start of the construction process. The actual demolition is scheduled for Aug. 1.
The new department, which is expected to be complete in December 2018, will be across the street from the existing headquarters, 1301 First Ave. N. The three-story 167,519-square-foot building will cost about $70 million and house the department’s 562 sworn officers and 230 civilian employees.
The St. Petersburg council also approved $6 million for a renovated firing range at 1845 13th Ave. N, and $5 million for an onsite secure parking garage.
