The Amarillo City Council has voted for a remodel of the Police Department’s Property and Evidence Building.

The cost will be 248 thousand dollars and will be paid for from money seized from criminal activity in Amarillo.

The remodel is aimed at keeping the integrity of evidence and to keep employees safe.

The remodel addresses several issues which include safety, security, and functionality. It will also address the fire suppression system, lighting, power, doors and hardware, and security automation.

Neither APD or the Council has set a date for the remodel to start
