The Henderson City Council approved a contract with the professional services firm of Knit, Inc. to develop an architectural needs assessment and building program for a new police station to serve the far west Henderson area and a police training facility.

The facility program will determine the building square footage and estimated construction budget and will be used to issue a request for proposal for the project design and construction. Construction of the police station and training facility will be funded through the issuance of general obligations bonds that were approved by the Henderson City Council on April 21.

The far west Henderson police station will be Henderson’s fourth police station and first police training facility, home to the Henderson Police Academy launched in 2019 using classroom space at the North Police Station.

The three existing stations are the East Police Station at 223 Lead St., the West Police Station at 300 S. Green Valley Pwky. and the North Police Station at 225 E. Sunset Rd.
