The city of Lakeway received a national award for the building design of the Lakeway Police Department in December. Officer Magazine held its second annual Law Enforcement Design Competition in 2021, which recognizes architecture and design from public safety and law enforcement facilities nationwide. Among 18 recipients, the department was given a silver award for facilities under 50,000 square feet, designed by Brinkley Sargent Wiginton Architects in Dallas. Submissions from architectural firms to the magazine were reviewed by a panel of five judges.
