MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. – As part of a district-wide master plan to replace and improve older law enforcement stations, St. Louis County Police are seeking contractor bids to build a $46 million Central County operations headquarters.
St. Louis-based architecture and planning firm JEMA is designing the future 40,000-square-foot police station in Maryland Heights, which will accommodate approximately 82 police officers and 23 staff.
The new operations hub – to include an intelligence cneter, crime lab and evidence storage space – will replace the current 2nd Precinct facility that has been operating since 1966.
State grant funding and county tax monies are anticipated to fund the project, roughly equal amounts of each. The facility is expected to be operational by June 2026.
