WINDSOR, Colo.—The Windsor Police Department is breaking ground on its new state-of-the-art facility this month and are hosting a celebration to mark the occasion.

The event will take place on Friday, Aug. 11 at 10 a.m. at the site of the new facility, 960 N. 15th St., which is directly north of the Windsor Public Services campus. Windsor’s Mayor, Paul Rennemeyer and town leadership will join officers and staff of the department, as well as other dignitaries from the community for the celebration. The event is free and open to members of the public who wish to attend.

“We are very excited and honored to share this moment with the community,” said Acting Chief of Police Aaron Lopez. “This is a project that has been long in the making and will give us new tools and resources to continue our mission of keeping our neighborhoods safe.”

The $30 million project will see the construction of a new headquarters, which will replace the department’s current building, located at 200 N. 11th St., as well as other off-site improvements. The new facility will provide more space for the expanding department and will include multiple training and development spaces, a large multipurpose conference area, and state-of-the-art evidence testing and processing facilities. Construction is expected to take around 18 months.
