The new 55,000 square-foot, three-story, Homestead Police Headquarters opened for business Wednesday, February 15, 2017. All are invited to the Grand Opening Ceremony on Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
Kicking off the event is a community parade that begins at 2:00 pm. The Grand Opening promises to be an exciting opportunity to tour the new facility, meet and greet our dedicated police force, and enjoy live music and free refreshments.
The old police station, built in 1912, was outdated and ill-equipped for 21st century law enforcement operations. The old station also had toxic radon levels and serious mold and water damage issues, which posed serious risks to the health and safety of police personnel.
The new Headquarters is also Green Globes Certified, ensuring a healthy environment for all due to sustainable choices in project management, site selection, energy conservation, water usage, materials selection, and indoor air quality.
Voters approved the passage of the police station bond referendum with an overwhelming 74% approval which provided funding to evacuate police personnel, temporarily relocate police operations, and construct the new police headquarters.
Undoubtedly, providing a safe working environment for our officers and ensuring they have the tools needed to uphold the City’s anti-crime efforts is a top priority for our residents and leadership.
The address for the new Homestead Headquarters is: 45 NW 1st Avenue, Homestead, FL 33030
