The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office is opening a new substation that will serve some 25,000 residents in the Four Square Mile and Holly Hills neighborhoods. The neighborhoods are within the Precinct 5 patrol service area. While the ACSO has always had a presence there, the new substation will offer a modern and updated facility for patrol deputies to work. The new facility provides will help strengthen the partnership between the ACSO and the community.
“We’re excited about our new substation,” said Sheriff Tyler Brown. “It will give us a visible presence in the area, and allow our deputies to spend more time interacting with residents in the community they serve.”
Deputies will report to the 4,029 square-foot facility for duty, get briefed via videoconferencing, book in evidence, conduct training, and hold small community meetings. Arapahoe County purchased the half-acre site for $760,000 in January 2018. The $1.74 million project was completed in seven months by Intergroup Architects and Alliance Construction Solutions.
“Survey results show 94 percent of residents believe public safety is an important service provided by Arapahoe County,” said Board of County Commissioner Chairman Jeff Baker. “The new substation aligns with what is important to our community and represents a fiscally-responsible investment in our quality of life.”
The former Precinct 5 substation was in a leased facility in the 9200 block of East Iliff Avenue. The ACSO outgrew that location and determined a permanent location owned by Arapahoe County was needed to meet the community’s needs.
ACSO has four substations including the one in Precinct 5. They are in Littleton, at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds, and Byers. The ACSO assigns deputies to work in specific geographic areas to maintain appropriate response times to calls for service and to build community partnerships.
Area community members are invited to the grand opening. Please RSVP.
