Santa Barbara Police Station Project
Why this Project?
The existing Santa Barbara City Police Station, located at 215 East Figueroa Street, was constructed in 1959. Since that time, there have been substantial increases in both City population and Police Department staff. In addition, the building does not meet modern seismic safety and accessibility standards. Together, growth and insufficient building standards have created the need for a new, accessible, and modernized facility.
Phase 2 of the new City Police Station Project is underway. Phase 2 considers potential sites for the new City Police Station and parking structure. During this phase, we invite the community to learn more about the site selection process by attending one of the scheduled informational meetings. Please see schedule of opportunities here. To stay up-to-date, check back on this page and/or enter your email address into the “Stay Informed” box near the top of the page.
Phase 1 of the new Police Station project, which recommended a new building footprint and size based on assessment of the Police Department's needs, was completed this summer. On August 14, the City Council approved the next phase of the new Police Station project.
