The City of North Las Vegas broke ground Wednesday on a 25,606 square foot new police station, the North Central Area Command, located in the Tule Springs master planned community. The facility is being built as a public-private partnership between the City of North Las Vegas and DR Horton and is expected to open in May 2023.
Located at the corner of West Deer Springs Way and Harwood Creek Street, this new facility will provide additional police services to the City and its growing neighborhoods. KGA Design is the architecture firm and Rafael Construction is the general contractor of the project.
The groundbreaking ceremony had special guests including City Manager Ryann Juden, Councilwoman Pamela Goynes-Brown, Councilman Scott Black, Councilman Richard Cherchio, and North Las Vegas Police Chief Jacqueline Gravatt.
“This City Council has prioritized public safety, and as a result, we have seen crime decrease steadily over the past decade, including a 23% year-over-year drop in violent crime,” Mayor John Lee said. “Over the past 8 years, we have increased the City’s public safety budget by $10 million dollars and we’ve hired 200 police employees.”
“Our Department is growing, and we are actively recruiting officers and civilian staff to add to the team,” North Las Vegas Police Chief Jacqueline Gravatt said. “When we open this new facility next year, our officers will be better positioned to quickly respond to calls for service and integrate even further into the community with programs, events and outreach efforts.”
