No. 3: Police Detention Area
Improvement No. 3:
Redesign of Police Detention Area

Holding cells and a booking area are necessary for any Police Department detention area. Burnsville typically has only a small number of detainees in their holding cells at a given time. However, officers still need adequate space for activities such as booking and fingerprinting, testing for levels of alcohol beginning the detoxification process.

Redesign and expansion of the detention area will reduce the number of holding cells and create a separate “jail” lobby. This will allow for secured prisoner and weapon transport, improved workflow, improved operational efficiency and enhanced public safety. It will also create an ADA compliant holding cell as well as adequate separation for juvenile and/or female holds.

Separating the main public lobby and the “jail” lobby will create a barrier between the general public and prisoners either being released or turnings themselves in.

This addresses:
  • Public Safety
  • ADA Accessibility
  • Operational Efficiency
  • Visitor Convenience
