The new Roseville Police Facility presents a new era of civic design in the developing Northwest Specific Plan Area. Stretching to cover the entire ±5 acre triangular site, the sweeping gable overhang of the building thrusts out to Junction Boulevard to create a visible civic landmark to its surroundings. 

The triangular geometries of the site, with a Heritage Oak Tree located in the center, created design challenges of function and form, with the elongation of building forms addressing the requirements of function and site. The glazed Public Gallery, addressing the Oak Tree and opening the building to the public, intersects the Police functions, becoming a building organizing element, with geometric forms 
radiating from the cross. The horizontal banding of the masonry structure provides a unification of building forms and a sense of human scale, while providing a non-imposing separation between the Police functions and the Public walkways and plazas around the Oak Tree. 

The new Police Facility replaces an outmoded facility and provides services to an increasing population; the new facility will meet the Police Department's future needs to the year 2020. For the first time, all the police functions can be housed in one building. The resulting ±83,456 square foot structure, Two Stories over a Basement, was designed for accessibility, communications, and efficient police 
operations. The Facility includes a Detention Center, Dispatch Center, and Firing Range, all incorporated into the design while minimizing the visible impact from the neighborhood.

The ±37,930 square foot Basement provides parking for 43 patrol cars, Property/Evidence Storage, SWAT Equipment Storage, a future Indoor ten-lane Firing Range, and a Type 1 Detention Facility, with 12 Double Occupancy Cells that can accommodate detainee's for up to 96 hours. The Detention Facility is designed to be controlled by one Detention Officer from a secure Command Center, surrounded by bullet resistant one-way glass. The Detention Facility includes Holding and Detox Cells, Showers, Kitchen, Interview Rooms, Booking Area, Line-up/Visitor Room and a remote controlled Vehicle Sallyport. 

The ±30,466 square foot First Floor includes the Public Gallery, Training Rooms, Records, Investigations, Interview Rooms, Patrol, Neighborhood Policing, Crime Analysis, Property & Evidence, and the 911/Police Dispatch Center. The daylighted Dispatch Center will initially accomodate five Dispatch Workstations, with capabilities of also operating the building security access system, by viewing 
strategically located Closed Circuit TV's, controlling all Parking Gates, Overhead Garage Doors, Vehicle Sallyport Doors, and Exterior Walk Doors.

The ±15,080 Second Floor includes the Office of the Chief, Police Administration, Staff Lockers and Showers, Exercise Room, Break Room, and room for Future Expansion. Skylights and Clerestories flood this level with natural Daylighting.

Security plays an important role in the design of the Facility. Masonry Walls secure the Police side of the site, while keeping vehicles away from the building. Building placement, away from Junction Boulevard and elevated above the road, discourage any public view of Police activities. Public spaces on the First Floor are separated from Police activities by bullet resistant construction, not apparent to 
the public eye, of common walls, doors, and windows. Public access to the Second Floor is restricted, with access limited to a Security Card-controlled Elevator. All exterior doors and security interior doors are Security Card-controlled. The Detention Facility has a state-of-the-art Control System to monitor ingress and egress through the Facility. The Dispatch Center is protected by bullet-resistant glass, allowing a commanding vista of the neighborhood.
