JRCA Architects Facility Design for Public Safety

JRCA Architects have a understanding of your unique operations, and proven best practices gained from agencies throughout the country. 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, and require special attention to building system design and material selection. 

A successful public safety facility will enhance law enforcement operations and support the implementation of justice within the community. Law enforcement buildings, emergency communications centers, and emergency operations centers must withstand the demands of 24 hour per day/ 7 days per week usage. 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.

A well designed facility 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
  • Reinforce the goals and character of the community
  • Convey a positive public image
