DRAPER — City officials have announced that construction has started to add a new public safety wing to Draper City Hall.

The 21,500-square-foot addition will house all police functions and staff.

“The new police facility will provide our staff the much-needed accommodations to better serve our community," Draper Police Chief Bryan Roberts said in a statement. "The addition will complement our current City Hall campus and bring value to all city services.”

The new three-level wing will include a lower level for patrol operations, prisoner processing and the property room functions. The main level will include the administrative functions and a front lobby for the public, the reception area, records management unit, and administrative staff. The upper level will house the investigations division, victim advocacy program and school resource officers.

About 5,400 square feet of the 21,500 will remain unfinished and allow for future expansion on the main and upper levels. The budget for the expansion is about $3.8 million.

Construction is expected to be completed in one year.
