Adolfson & Peterson Construction Opens the New City of Englewood Police Station Headquarters
Inside the new Englewood Police Station Headquarters, police officers stood shoulder-to-shoulder with community members and city officials – a symbol of the inclusivity and approachability that the new facility is meant to represent. Beginning with a flag raising ceremony and ending with building tours, Englewood cut the ribbon on its new police station.
The building provides modern and secure facility needs, and more than doubles the station’s old facility space. The new facility was built inches from the original headquarters, which was built in 1972. Now that the new building has been completed, the existing facility will be carefully demolished and replaced with secured parking in its place.
“I’m at a loss for words for what this means for the department,” said Englewood Police Chief John Collins. “Long after we’re gone, this building will remain.”
Operational flow was developed carefully by architect DLR, with large open spaces balancing the necessarily tight spaces of a police station. Natural light floods the space by way of large open windows and skylights, and corridors were configured in a way that encourages staff interacting casually and easily.
