General Project Information

In 2010 the City of Durham commissioned a Facilities Program Study to prepare a 20 year Police Department master space and facilities plan for all police facilities located in the City of Durham, North Carolina. 

The City determined the need to provide updated and functional facilities for the 366 Police staff and 100 Emergency Communications staff projected to be in the building by 2025. 

The new Police Headquarters Complex will be located on approximately 4.5 acres at the intersection of East Main and Elizabeth Streets in downtown Durham. 

The project consists of a new 125,000 square foot Headquarters building, a 433 car parking garage, a 57 space visitor surface parking lot, and a portion of the overall parcel designated for future growth and development.
