We are in the middle of developing a new facility plan for the police, fire department, sheriff and jails. We have completed the public particpation portion of the planning process and are now getting ready to finish the analysis and write the plan.
Does anyone have any good examples of a "typical district police station", I'm looking for size, acres needed. Our police told us they prefer single story, but have no ideas about the size of the building.
We are also looking for national standards for firefighters per 1,000 population and police, although we have looked at similar jurisdictions population wise for police. The Police Dept. asked us to look at jurisdictions with similar crime rates. Ths county suffers from a high muder, drug problem and a car theft problem that is out of hand.
