Richardson Police Department
*2020 LET Law Enforcement Design Awards | Silver – LE Facilities 01 | 50,000 SF+ Stations
The great design adapts to changing perspectives and no building is a greater example of this than the new Police Department for the City of Richardson. BRW and the City have worked together to create a facility that embraces the modern vision of police officers as guardians of contemporary society. The new facility provides an unprecedented opportunity to create a stronger connection between the Richardson Police force and the community they guard. As part of the Richardson Public Safety Campus, which includes a Fire Station and 911 | Dispatch, the 86,000 SF Police Department sits at the forefront of public view adjacent to the open green space just off Main Street. The building itself utilizes materials and architectural characteristics such as wood accents, oversized porches, and integrated ballistic glass to create a welcoming environment.
