Greensboro, NC -- Greensboro Police Department unveiled their new headquarters in downtown Greensboro 10 a.m. Monday.
Tours of the six-story building at 100 Police Plaza were provided to visitors to gain a better understanding for the department's daily operations.
"This is a milestone in the department's history," said Chief Ken Miller in a news release. "For far too long our great city has not had a distinguishable police headquarters. The acquisition and renovation of this building changes all that."
The City of Greensboro bought the building from the General Services Administration for $1 in July 2011. Following renovations, GPD gradually began moving in during May 2012.
GPD's new headquarters, formerly 320 Federal Place, is housed on top of 2.4 acres. The building has 94,809 square feet and 187 parking spaces. It was opened in 1955 after four years of construction, and is valued at $20 million.
