ANGIER – Angier is pursuing financing from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to construct its new police station, according to action taken at the Angier Board of Commissioners meeting Tuesday night.

The project is estimated to cost $6 million and the town plans to seek financing for $5.8 million from the USDA, using $200,000 from its own coffers for interim financing. The new station is set to be located at 29 W. McIver St.

Angier officials envision a two-story building of 6,500 to 7,000 square feet standing guard on the corner of West McIver Street and South Broad Street East as its new law enforcement headquarters. 

The town released a request for qualifications from companies capable of both designing and building the new center in February. That request specifies Angier is looking for: six offices, including one each for the chief, captain, lieutenant, two detectives and two others; an open office for sergeants; locker rooms for men and women; an open office for patrolmen with five to six workspaces; a briefing room or emergency operations center; a file room; an equipment room; bathrooms; a break room; a lobby; a dedicated physical fitness space; secure back entrances; a conference room; and storage space. The town will also need a generator and rooms to be fully furnished, according to the request.

The facility is expected to meet any standards set by the North Carolina Law Enforcement Accreditation.
