City Priority Project: City Police Headquarters

City Police Headquarters

Serving the second largest city in the State of Maryland, Frederick’s police force has faced severe space limitations since the establishment of current headquarters in 1982. Growth pressures have  necessitated expansion into satellite offices— posing both safety and workflow challenges. According to a recent Space Needs Assessment, the current facilities (a combined 25,784 SF) do not meet baseline calculations (45,425 SF) needed to maximize existing resources, and cannot accommodate Frederick’s projected growth over the coming decades. Site selection for a new headquarters location is currently underway.

Proposed project includes: 

· ~60,000 SF  new headquarters space — consolidating police operations into a single, more secure & efficient facility

· Dedicated secured parking lot
