The one-story facility cost $700,000 to build with the county maintenance department doing in-kind work estimated at $300,000.

The new 6,600 square-foot office nearly triples the size of existing office. It now has two evidence rooms, a deputies’ room, supervisor offices, a lunch room and a one-vehicle garage so that work on patrol cars can be done indoors.
