Dane County Sheriff Southeast Precinct
SQ. FT.10,100 square feet
A former Human Services Building was renovated to serve as a new precinct location for the Dane County Sheriff’s Southeast Precinct. The new precinct improves services and response times, adds space for vehicle storage, and eliminates inadequacies of their current undersized facility.
During the pre-design study and phase I of design, OPN reviewed ideal flow and adjacencies in order to identify innovative ways to reinvent existing spaces to better serve current and future functions, including the latest security techniques, state-of-the-art technology, and efficient workspaces.
It was important to the client that the public feel welcome at the new precinct. The remodeled facility’s location also allows for better response times, while the state-of-the-art space for deputies and embedded mental health staff enables the precinct to better ensure public safety and conduct thorough investigations as members of the communities they serve.
