The Police Station – A Contemporary Design Challenge

In the context of social unrest, violent protests, easy access to guns, Black Lives Matter, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the decanting of mental health facilities and the legalization of marijuana, society’s standard institutions and approaches are being challenged and questioned. Police often find themselves on the front lines of these issues, and are asked to serve and protect in a complex and changing environment. New skill sets, changing laws and evolving expectations need a commensurate evolution in building typology to support them, symbolize those changes, and positively enhance city building and the connection between policing and the community.
