Description

This project provides for planning, design and construction of a new 28,294 gross square feet 6th District Police Station and a new parking garage of 59,526 gross square feet in two levels to serve Gaithersburg/Montgomery Village and vicinity. The Station will be in a new development located on extended Watkins Mill Road between I-270 and MD-355. The district station is a facility consisting of two floors and parking for the public and staff. The first floor houses the public access area, operations, patrol and support functions, and a small prisoner holding area. The station will serve as the base for the Central Traffic Unit that was established in July 2021. The second floor houses four special teams, including investigative units, patrol sergeant offices, staff support, administration, and an exercise room. Besides a surface parking lot that will provide 37 parking spaces in the non-secured area, a two-level parking garage to accommodate 148 cars will be constructed inside the secured area. This parking garage will house a large evidence room, a vehicle service bay, a flare storage, a bicycle storage, and a storage room for the Central Traffic Unit's 29 motorcycles. The district station is a 24-hour per day, seven-day per week operation and provides support for beat teams. It is the command center for any satellite facilities within the police district. The district station will accommodate up to 178 department staff and volunteers. It has been sized to meet the needs projected in the Police Chief's Staffing Plan. A public meeting room on the first floor will be available to facilitate outreach with the community.
