New Police Station
Check out the progress on the new Ballwin Police Station as of November 9th:
The City of Ballwin has broken ground on the future home of the Ballwin Police Department. The new site is located at the intersection of Kehrs Mill Road and Ballpark Drive, next door to Metro West Fire and across the street from Ballwin Public Works.
Location of the future Ballwin Police Station
The current department, located at 300 Park Drive, has served the Ballwin Police Department for over 50 years. When the building was initially constructed in 1970, it housed several departments including administration, parks and recreation, municipal court, and police. The last major remodel to the facility occurred in 1999, after the City’s administration department moved out.
The total cost of the project is approximately $13.6 million and is being financed with no debt to the City. Funds for the project are coming from the City’s fund reserves and federal stimulus money.
The new station is expected to be completed by spring of 2023 and will have underground parking, modern facilities, an improved ventilation system, full ADA compliance, safer entry ways for our officers and visitors, and much more. We are excited to embark on this new adventure and look forward to building a safe, modern facility to serve the current and future needs of our officers and the community.
Thank you everyone who attended the Groundbreaking for the new Ballwin Police Station!
