The new Salinas Police Services Headquarters building is a $56 million project for the City of Salinas. The old police station was originally constructed in 1958 and had significant structural and interior deterioration and it failed to meet their needs. The new police headquarters consists of two buildings, a two-story, 44,352 square foot building and a second, 24,878 square foot building. The facility houses all first responder functions and has been built to the highest life safety building standards for wind and seismic events. The facility includes state-of-the-art evidence storage areas, forensic laboratories, canine and bicycle officer support and a ten-station firing range.
The project was unanimously approved by the Salinas City Council in May of 2018. Construction on the project began in August of 2018 and the project was completed on-time and on-budget. In July 2020, the Salinas Police Services Headquarters won the ENR California 2020 Government/Public Buildings Best Project – Northern Region Award.
