Sheriff Administration Facilities

Having livable, workable administration spaces for sheriffs and their staff is vitally important to the smooth operation of any county sheriff’s department, directly enhancing community safety and security. Providing such spaces is what we do at Elevatus Architecture Fort Wayne.
Among the key components of a typical department layout and how it impacts the sheriff’s mission are …
  • a Road Patrol area that serves as a “home” base, located to provide quick in-and-out to officers’ cars for emergency response and providing showers for cleanup after, say, a meth bust;
  • a Detectives’ area, including an evidence processing area laid out for proper handling of evidence, with features such as pass-through lockers, a lab, a CSI office, interview rooms, detective offices/work stations, and shielded parking for the cars of undercover cops;
  • a Sheriff’s Staff area configured to maintain a secure barrier that keeps unwanted intruders out yet still presents a degree of openness to the public; and
  • an Emergency Management/Emergency Operations center filled with the technology required to handle a full-blown crisis yet also designed as a flexible space that can be used as a conference/training center.
