New GPD Building Dedicated to Officers Who Made A Difference
GAINESVILLE - The new GPD building is no longer a rendering, and will be open to the public Saturday morning for tours.
The orginial building was constructed in 1952 and over 6 decades later a new one stands in its place.
The 10.6 million dollar building is a homecoming for officers who have been operating out of odd buildings for a year and half.
It's a building that's for more than just officers.
Officer Ben Tobias, Gainesville Police Department: "this is going to be used for town hall meetings it is going to be used for crime watch meetings any time we want to bring the public in and you know have any kind of meetings for the public this is the community's room and Chief Jones is very passionate about the fact that it is going to be open to the public for their use."
GPD will be blocking off the street in front of the new building tomorrow morning and there will be snacks served.
Tours will begin at 11 a.m.
