FACILITIES & SECURITY MANAGEMENT DIVISION
The Facilities & Security Management Division has a mostly civilian staff that is responsible for the department’s facilities maintenance, security management and capital projects.
FSMD responsibilities include overseeing the planning, design and construction of the new police headquarters facility, providing custodial services, maintaining the existing inventory of space, coordinating maintenance/repair services and managing the access control and video surveillance systems for the facilities.
Facilities Maintenance: A staff of custodians and a facilities supervisor provide custodial and facilities maintenance/repair services. The staff maintains over 15 facilities covering over 85,000 square feet of owned and leased space.
Facilities Security: The security system, covering access control, intrusion monitoring and video surveillance, consists of over 150 devices from card readers to vibration sensors to covert cameras. The systems must remain function on 24/7 basis to provide access control to an operation that never stops. This section also manages the department telephone system.
Capital Projects: The Capital Projects program is responsible for guiding the department through the planning, design, construction and occupancy of a state-of-the-art facility which will be completed in CY 2011. Ensuring that the department’s requirements are clearly understood, communicated, and included in the new facility project is the major focus of this program. This program is also responsible for capital projects at the other departmental facilities.
