Police Department Moves to Temporary Location May 15

May 10, 2017
 
The Arlington Heights Police Department will be moving to a temporary facility, 1500 W. Shure Drive, on Monday, May 15 while a new police station is built on the municipal campus, between the Municipal Garage and Fire Station #1. The temporary location is near Route 53 and Dundee Road.
 
The Department will maintain its same level of coverage, providing the community with 24/7 police services.  Although the temporary facility is located in the northern section of the Village, regular patrols will not be impacted.  Patrol deployment schedules will be staggered. Different starting and ending times ensures continuous Police coverage.  Police officers are deployed throughout the community to strategic geographical areas and do not regularly respond from a physical location when assigned to investigate a call for service. Designated areas of patrol responsibility or beats allows officers to provide a quick response to any calls received during their shift. This will allow for a continuity of service while a new facility is under construction.
 
People who wish to conduct police business on Monday, May 15th may do so after 8 a.m. by visiting the Police Department’s temporary location at 1500 Shure Drive, Suite 100 (off the 1st floor lobby). All phone and email contacts for Police Department personnel will remain the same.

The Police Department will occupy approximately 15,000 square feet of space at 1500 W. Shure Drive, which consists of 2,300 square feet on the first-floor of the building with the remainder on the third floor. The first floor will include a front desk that offers 24/7 service to the public.
 
Village Hall and two Fire Stations have also made workspace accommodations for Police officers who can utilize the offices 24/7 to file a report remotely or conduct other business without needing to travel to the temporary facility.
 
The Village has budgeted $2.2 million for other building costs and a temporary relocation, moving costs, rent and other miscellaneous costs related to construction of a new facility, the $21,896.88 monthly rent for 15,000 square feet is well within the allotted budget. The terms of the lease are for 24 months with an option to extend if necessary, along with the ability to vacate after 14 months with no termination fee.
 
Construction of a new facility will begin this summer and include a two-level building of approximately 70,500 square-feet and a 10,000 square foot garage. Construction of the new station is expected to cost $27.9 million.
