Waseca Public Safety Center

Waseca, MN

26,000 Square Feet

A vacated grocery store was transformed into the new Waseca Public Safety Building where the City’s Police and Fire Departments are now located along with the Connections Visitation Center. An existing building analysis and a department space needs study was conducted to fit the spaces needed into the new building.

Each department has a separate entrance and lobby area for security purposes and the Police Department also houses private conference rooms to hear concerns and process grievances by residents. A community meeting and training room are also part of this new facility. A secured and monitored visitation room was added, as well as a safe haven visitation and exchange center. The large paved area from the old grocery store parking lot is now broken up to add visual appeal and more green space to the site. There is also a new impound lot for the City and more garage space for both departments. By combining City services, the community now has a central location for services along with enough space to meet the needs of those who utilize the space.
