The Homestead Police Department is Moving to a Temporary Police Station

The City of Homestead’s Police Department is moving to a Temporary Police Station located at the Homestead Sports Complex at 1601 SE 28th Ave. Homestead, FL 33035 on Wednesday, March 18, 2015. This new location is just 10 minutes away from the old location on Krome Avenue. The old police station presented several issues such as radon and mold contamination, outdated facilities, and other safety concerns.

In fact, radon levels inside the old police station are five times higher than they should be and radon is the leading cause of lung cancer amongst non-smokers. Additionally, when the building was first constructed in 1912, it serviced only 121 residents. Today, Homestead has more than 60,000 residents. The old station is too small, ill-equipped for 21st century law enforcement, and fails to meet many FEMA and ADA standards.

Thanks to the special election in May 2014, funding has been provided for the Temporary Police Station and a new Police Station. An overwhelming majority of Homestead voters, 74%, voted in favor of the Bond for the new facilities. The temporary location will be the home of Police operations until the new station, to be located Downtown, is completed.

Residents taking public transportation to the Temporary Police Station can board the City’s free East-West Trolley at the stop directly in front of Old Town Hall Museum. The Trolley makes a stop at the new facility. For more information on the move, visit www.cityofhomestead.com/policestation or call (305) 224-5515.
