The new 32,000 square foot Beverly Police Headquarters Facility project included the installation of a 21st-century security system, advanced technology, a joint police/fire dispatch operations center and an emergency communications system. Inside the 3-story facility is a detention area with prisoner cells, a dispatch center, an animal control room, small offices and a bullet-proof lobby on the ground floor; locker rooms, training spaces and offices on the second floor; and offices for detectives, the police chief and other administrative personnel on the third floor.
W.T. Rich also spearheaded the installation of a state-of-the-art simulation training room on the second floor, an initiative drawn from research on technology-based law enforcement training. The space will be equipped with virtual reality technologies to create reality-based situational training scenarios that will teach law enforcement officers de-escalation techniques as well as best practices for responding to any and every situation that might present itself out in the force. These efforts from the project team and City of Beverly representatives will help ensure that every law enforcement officer and member of the community are protected and safe.
