Police department on track to open by August


The brand new $8 million Gluckstadt Police Station and Municipal Court building is on track to be operational by the end of August.

Gluckstadt Police Chief Barry Hale said they have a target move-in date of Aug. 28, though “it is not written in stone.” This will be a year after city and state officials held a groundbreaking at the site last August.

He said crews are finishing up the outside of the building and they look forward to seeing the inside of the city’s first new building take shape.

“There have been no bumps in the road as far as I know,” Hale said. 

The building is located at the corner of Gluckstadt Way and Church Road just south of Germantown High School at 140 Gluckstadt Way. 

The new building is estimated to be around 14,000 square feet and will house the Municipal Court, holding cells, dispatch, and offices. The building itself will cost about $6.9 million not counting the costs after dispatch is implemented along with furnishing and access control. 

Benchmark Construction is in charge of construction and Dean Architecture did the design.

Hale said the Safe Haven Baby Box made possible by a $25,000 fundraising campaign is in storage and will be installed at the facility before it opens.

The box was approved by the city board in November and in December they announced they had reached their fundraising goal.
