FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Chief Steve Anderson, Mayor David Briley, Metro Councilmembers and community leaders today cut the ribbon during a dedication ceremony for the Metropolitan Police Department’s new headquarters building at 600 Murfreesboro Pike.
“This is a purpose-built building, constructed with the thought of providing all that is needed to support the men and women who work every day to serve all of Nashville,” Chief Anderson said. “There is more than 110,000 square feet engineered for efficiency and service. It goes without saying, this is a building of grand design. It is also a building of grand function.”
“MNPD’s new headquarters serves as a demonstration of our city’s commitment to public safety, collaboration and community,” said Mayor David Briley. “I particularly like that this new campus will facilitate the connection between the MNPD, the new Family Safety Center opening next week, and our nonprofit and advocacy community who all work to keep Nashvillians safe. It is a model for the rest of the nation.”
The four-story new headquarters building is the work home to 246 MNPD employees. It contains 110,059 square feet, including Information Technology garage space where computer equipment is installed in police vehicles.
