Municipal Architecture



Working closely with city staff and police administration, the Architectural Practice designed a new police headquarters facility to meet the growing needs of the community. Desired goals were met with an efficient and economical building that enabled officers to carry out their daily tasks while balancing the need for security and community friendly public areas.

Communications, Dispatch and Records can interface directly with the public from a secure bullet resistant counter with high visibility to the lobby area. The entry was designed to be a “safe zone” for refuge from danger with remote entry lockdown modes controlled by the communications officer. The lobby which displays the history of the Harker Heights Police department, includes an informal interview room and a large community room. The secure side of the facility houses areas for Patrol, the Criminal Investigative Division, Juvenile Detention, Administration, Community Services and support spaces that includes a large locker/shower area. The detention areas have holding cells, an exterior sally port, secure interview, and laundry.
