Planning, Designing, and Constructing Police Facilities
An effective law enforcement agency evolves to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of the community it serves. Unfortunately, many police agencies are housed in facilities that, while built for long-term service, have become inadequate for actual departmental functions. IACP provides resources and a three-day course that guides law enforcement executives and city project managers through the challenge of planning, designing, and constructing a new or renovated police facility.
The following resources will assist law enforcement executives, city project managers, and public safety architects through the various processes of planning, designing, and constructing police facilities.
Public Safety Facilities: Funding and Financing Options (Coming Soon)
Police Training Facilities Planning Guidelines (Coming Soon)

Planning, Designing, and Constructing Police Facilities Course
Designed for city administrators, law enforcement executives, police planners, and others responsible for administering the construction, modification, or design of new or existing police facilities, this three-day course provides fundamental knowledge that can be used to develop a cost-effective facility that meets both the department's requirements and the community's needs.
At the conclusion of the course, participants should be able to do the following:
