With the Brenham Police Department having outgrown their previous facility, a new two-story 24,000 SF facility was designed by Police Facility Design Group to meet both their current and future operational needs. So that the facility would fit comfortably within the context of the surrounding community, the facility is designed with a traditional feel but with contemporary lines. Exterior covered storage for police tactical vehicles is included and the entire site is master planned to accommodate a future fire station. The new lobby areas provide convenient public access to records, investigations, administration, a multi-purpose training room, and a community room. The design provides Brenham with security features lacking in their previous facility, including a full-featured access control and surveillance system. The project was constructed by Teal Construction and completed in 2009.
