Georgia Institute of Technology Campus Safety Facility

This new 30,000 square foot facility will allow the campus to replace obsolete police facilities, consolidate the units into one location, and modernize the police functions. The proposed building will house all units and departments of the Georgia Tech Police Department, along with all of their storage needs. The project will require a significant amount of secure outdoor structured parking for patrol vehicles, utility trailers, and specialty vehicles. While many of the program elements are typical to an office building, such as offices and conference rooms, there are several unique elements specific to the function of a Police Department. Some of these elements include an Emergency Operations Center, K9 facilities, locker rooms, a Forensic Lab, an Armory and an exterior vehicular sally-port for secure movement of persons in custody.
