Project Description

The Holly Springs Police Department moved into a new law enforcement center, which replaces the small, century-old building next to the Town Hall that had once been the police headquarters.

At more than 28,000 square feet, the new law enforcement center is several times larger than the previous police station. Holly Springs is one of only three municipalities in Wake County with its own 911 center. The previous police station could not accommodate the additional staffing that will be needed over time due to increasing calls for service and evolving state regulations. Call volumes at the center have doubled in the past 10 years.

The new station was needed not simply for additional room, but for space that is designed for the specialized needs of law enforcement. These spaces include; suspect interview rooms, training rooms for firearms simulation and defensive tactics, fitness room, secure evidence storage, and  a larger 911 communications center for police, fire and emergency medical services that will meet future needs. There are also conference rooms, (for public meetings and Emergency Operations Center) and animal holding areas for awaiting transport to a local animal shelters, and enclosures for K-9 officers, where they can move around while their handlers are at the center.
