Police Open House and Ribbon Cutting on December 13

On December 13, 2022, from 6:00 – 7:30pm, the community is invited to a ribbon cutting and open house to celebrate the expansion and remodel of the Frisco Police Department, located in Frisco Town Hall at 1 Main Street. The ribbon cutting and open house event will feature light appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages, along with tours of the remodeled and expanded space.

We wanted to ensure that this space supported excellence and professionalism and more accurately reflected the appreciation we have for our police staff. For example- before this, we had a kitchen space without a sink or running water. This remodel and expansion mean that not only can officers grab a quick bite to eat in an efficient and modern kitchen space, but they also have interview spaces and individual computer stations that support the effort, integrity, and respect for community that they bring to their profession every day,” stated Police Chief Tom Wickman.

Background and Scope

On March 8, 2022, Frisco Town Council approved a contract with MW Golden Constructors for the remodel of the Police Department at a cost not to exceed $1,576,791. The Frisco Police Department offices were last remodeled 22 years ago in 2000. Due to the extensive growth that Frisco and Summit County have experienced, the department had outgrown their current space and needed a remodel and an expansion to enable them to better utilize their existing space and move into a space in town hall that has been used for storage in the past.

This remodel and expansion, which began in May 2022, is intended to provide more a suitable facility to accommodate police operations, which will better serve the community and aid in the recruitment and retention of officers. The project was anticipated to take seven and a half months to complete and has reached significant completion in that timeline.

Overview of Project Scope

  • Remodel and expansion of the existing squad room so it can better serve current operations and act as a backup to the Summit County Emergency Operations Center, which is located at County Commons
  • The addition of a fully functional kitchen
  • Updated HVAC systems
  • Construction of male and female sleeping areas to provide officers who travel from the Front Range and other areas a place to stay during inclement weather, for court appearances, and when there is a tight shift turnover
