MARSHALL, MI – Three police agencies will share one new building once all moves are complete.
Michigan State Police troopers, the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department and the City of Marshall Police have a new home located at 714 Old US 27 North in Marshall.
The $10 million building is the first cooperative facility in Michigan and unlike anything across the United States. Within the next month, Michigan State Police will move operations from the Coldwater post while the sheriff will move staff from the Calhoun County Correctional Facility in Battle Creek and several temporary offices scattered across the county. The City of Marshall Police will move its offices from temporary quarters it has in the Department of Public Works building.
The 38,000-square-foot building will have an evidence room, interviewing rooms, office space, temporary holding cells, an exercise room, defensive tactics training room and locker facilities along with a separate 17,500-square-foot building to store boats and other police vehicles. Detectives from all departments will have a common office area and patrol officers also will work in a common area.
All moves for the three entities are expected to be complete by October 1st, 2015.
A dedication for the new facility took place on Monday, August 31st, 2015.
