DeKalb police to host open house today

DeKALB – The public is invited to tour the DeKalb Police Department’s new station from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today.

Tours will start at the garage doors on the west side of the building at 700 W. Lincoln Highway. The new 35,000-square-foot station opened Nov. 22 after police officials spent about two days moving records, evidence and other necessities from the DeKalb Municipal Building, 200 S. Fourth St.

The new building features a separate booking area with its own entrances and exits, emergency buttons throughout the building to summon more officers, and an overnight holding cell for intoxicated suspects that has a drain and can be cleaned from outside the cell. The city broke ground on the $12.7 million project in September 2012.

It houses about 60 sworn police officers, three secretaries, a handful of community service officers and a maintenance worker.
