Council to provide direction on Police-Court facility

Police Station

The City Council on Jan. 25 will provide direction on the next steps for a future Police Station and Municipal Court facility.

The City seeks to build a safe, accessible and adequately sized facility that will serve the community’s needs for the next 50 years.

Over the years, the City has analyzed 18 potential sites for the Police and Court facility and has spent nearly $11 million on this project.

During the Jan. 25 meeting, City staff will lead a presentation on potential next steps. Staff will review three City-owned properties for a future Police and Court facility site and the pros and cons of each location.

The sites include:

  • The existing Police Station at 625 Winslow Way E
  • The Suzuki property at the intersection of Sportsman Club and New Brooklyn Road 
  • The 8804 Madison Avenue building that was purchased in early 2020

Staff will present an evaluation of the Madison Avenue building purchase and the implications for the sale or change in use of that property as it was purchased with tax-exempt bonds.

The staff memo and presentation materials for the Jan. 25 meeting are being released now to allow additional time for review. You may view these documents on the Police-Court project page at bainbridgewa.gov/policecourt.
