Greensboro Getting New Police Headquarters

Oct 17, 2011

The Greensboro Police Department is getting a new headquarters.

Earlier this year the city purchased the old IRS building for 1 dollar. The 94,000 square foot building will undergo 900 thousand dollars in renovations during the next three years. But overall the 56-year-old building is in good condition

Greensboro police Captain Mike Richey: "There's really no telling how long this building will last. the structure, the foundation is in great shape and we expect it to last for years to come"

Richey says the new downtown location will provide a larger more efficient home for the force. The facility will house 150 employees immediately and more than 400 by 2014.
