JRCA Architects Facility Design for Public Safety

The useful life of a typical Public Safety building can range from 30 -50 years. These are unique facilities, combining varied security requirements, specialized operational flows, and conveying a positive image to the community. Public Safety facilities are not your typical office building. Law Enforcement buildings, Emergency Communications Centers, and Emergency Operations Centers must withstand the demands of 24 hour per day/ 7 days per week usage. This requires special attention to building system design and material selection.

When it comes to Justice Centers the actions of the Court can have a profound impact on the lives of individual citizens and should therefore convey an appropriate ‘quiet’ dignity.

JRCA’s interactive design workshop process brings together our extensive Public Safety design experience with more than 35 Communities, State, and Federal Agencies, an understanding of your unique operations, and proven best practices from gained from agencies throughout the country.

A successful Public Safety Facility will enhance Law Enforcement operations and support the implementation of Justice within the Community. The design should:

  • Provide flexibility to accommodate changes in services / programs / technology
  • Reinforce the daily activity of officers and staff
  • Provide clear separation of public and secure areas
  • Help to ensure the safety of the public / staff / officers / detainees
  • Support a clear and secure chain of evidence
  • Compliment the goals and character of the community
  • Convey a positive public image
