Arvada breaks ground on new police station

The Whisper Creek station is expected to open in 2019

Posted

Northwest Arvada is one step closer to having its own community police station. The Whisper Creek Police Community Station, also referred to as the Delta Sector police station, is now under construction following a formal groundbreaking held June 25.

“One of the things I hear a lot from people on this side of town is public safety,” said councilman David Jones, who represents this section of Arvada. “Public safety is an important thing to me as it is for city council and staff and our police department. Having this station here will help when those unfortunate things arise in this area… the response times will be much faster.”

At its June 4 meeting, the Arvada City Council unanimously approved an agreement with Golden Triangle Construction, Inc. to build the Arvada Police Department's latest community station with a $4.2 million price tag. This new station, which will open in mid 2019, will serve Arvada's northwest area which is currently served by the West Woods community station.

The new station is designed by Barker, Rinker, Seacat Architects and will utilize a similar layout and materials as the West Woods and Lake Arbor substations.

Completion of the Whisper Creek Community Station is associated with the Arvada Police Department's Sector Based Policing philosophy. Under this model, Arvada police officers are assigned to, and responsible for, specific areas of the city.

Arvada currently has four sectors operating out of three locations: Lake Arbor serving Adams Sector, headquarters at Arvada City Hall serving Baker Sector, and West Woods serving both Charlie and Delta Sectors. The Delta Sector will move to the Whisper Creek community station upon completion of construction.

“We think by having a station in the northwest corner of the city, it's going to provide better service to the community,” said Arvada Mayor Marc Williams.
