Murrieta Police Headquarters


Completed in June 2002, the Murrieta Police Headquarters is a full-service, Design-Build Police Headquarters facility.  The one-story building and site program includes 38,000 square feet of building functions in two separate buildings supported by 163 parking spaces for staff and patrol vehicles in a secured yard on the 5.40-acre site.  The building floor plan situates related activities in close proximity to enhance workgroup efficiency and interaction.  The facility includes adult and juvenile short-term holding, Livescan, detective and investigations areas, armory, evidence and property storage and briefing/training rooms.  It is equipped with an upgraded state-of-the-art Emergency Operations Center and Communications Center, which receives and dispatches calls for the Murrieta Police and Fire Departments.   The secure yard also contains a combined horse stable and K-9 area.

The Headquarters facility is designed to enhance the quality of life and morale of officers, staff and the general public.  Enhancements include:  spacious locker rooms and shower facilities, a fully equipped work-out room, lunchroom with modern appliances, an outdoor employee break area with water feature, a community room and more than 50 public visitor parking spaces.
