Project Description

The new Durham Police Headquarters Complex is necessary because the current headquarters no longer meets the critical needs of the Durham Police Department or the Durham Emergency Communication Center due to size, condition, configuration, and operational needs of the current building.

The CIP project, to be located on a 4.5-acre site bounded by East Main, Elizabeth, Hood and Ramseur streets, will consolidate police functions currently housed in multiple locations as well as provide a secure parking deck. The new complex will include all police and E911 functions currently located at the existing police headquarters as well as:
  • District 5
  • Durham Emergency Communications Center
  • Forensics Services Unit
