The South San Francisco City Council awarded Swinerton the construction contract for the new $52 million Police Operations Center and 911 Dispatch Center at its council meeting held on January 8, 2020.
“Public safety is our number one priority in South San Francisco,” said South San Francisco Mayor Rich Garbarino. “The men and women in our police department do a fantastic job of keeping residents and visitors safe, and this new state-of-the-art police operations center will give police the tools they need to continue doing a great job.”
The more than 44,000 square foot facility will house the 911 Emergency Center, administrative services, records, communications, investigations, property and evidence, patrol, physical training, a classroom and firing range.
The location of the new police headquarters is at 1 Chestnut Avenue in South San Francisco, the site of the former Pet Club store. The official groundbreaking is scheduled for February 2020 with the facility currently scheduled to open in early 2022.
