Public Safety Center

In November 2016, Beaverton voters approved a ballot measure to construct a modern, earthquake resistant police and emergency management building.

Beaverton’s public safety center will consolidate police services, move police facilities out of a flood zone, and meet residents’ needs for the next 30 years:
  • Built to critical-facility standards.
  • Private areas for crime victims and juveniles.
  • Onsite storage for property and evidence—eliminating need for offsite rented space.
  • Flexible design for future growth.
  • Community meeting rooms.
  • Emergency Operations Center, with modern equipment, that is ready for emergency response during major wind, storm, flood and other events.

Location


The 90,000 square-foot building will be located on city-owned property at the corner of SW Hall Blvd and SW Allen Blvd. This location is where three patrol districts meet and is accessible by public transportation.

Cost


The public safety center is projected to cost $35 million. The bond measure will not increase residents’ bond tax rate because it replaces the Beaverton City Library construction bonds.

The rate is about 20 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. Property owners will continue to pay about $4.20 per month for property with an assessed value of $250,000.

Next Steps


The design and permitting phases of the project are underway and are expected to last 12 months. The construction phase of the project is anticipated to last 18 to 24 months. The public safety center is estimated for completion in early-2020.
