Milwaukee Third District Police Station & City-Wide 911 Call Center
The City of Milwaukee, in developing a plan for a new Third District Police Department and City-Wide Communications Center, conducted a nationwide screening of architectural consultants before selecting Zimmerman to design the facility. An important aspect of the project is to integrate the multiple functions of the building, including a district police station, city-wide 911 call center and the secure and public parking ramp, into an urban setting. On the second and third floor of the center is call-receiving and dispatching operations which directs the assignment of Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) resources to crime events, public assistance calls, fires, medical situations and major emergencies or disasters in the City of Milwaukee. This operational side will also house the Data Services Center for MPD. The second primary function of this building is to house the new 3rd district police station which will perform the day to day duties of community policing, law enforcement, public protection and safety to the neighborhood.
