WACO - The Waco Police Department's new headquarters has opened in the former Hillcrest Medical Tower at 3115 Pine Ave. The ten-story tower, which encompasses about 110,000 sf, has more than three times the space of the department’s former headquarters.
The tower and its parking
garage were purchased and renovated for about $14.4 million.
The move will bring together a number of divisions previously located at different sites. Among those moving from satellite locations to the new headquarters are the Family Violence Unit, Neighborhood Services Section, Community Outreach and Animal Control.
The former offices on North Fourth St. will house some administrative offices, including those of the crime scene technicians.
It also boasts a new, state-of-the-art dispatch center that Waco Police Chief Brent Stroman described as the best in Texas.
