Kicking off its largest city project to date, Brentwood City Commission and Brentwood Police Department broke ground on its new police headquarters Sept. 11.

Following a moment of silence to mark the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the city of Brentwood debuted the site where its 56,000-square-foot police building will stand on Heritage Way on the east side of I-65. The headquarters is the largest capital project in the city's history, according to the city.

"On this very special day for America, we also honor and remember the blessing of our local first responders here who truly serve with excellence and love," Mayor Rhea Little said during the event. "Their courage and faithfulness is amazing and they do it day in and day out. This new police station is going to be a great addition to an already wonderful city. [The new building] will have points of public interaction for residents—a multi-function area featuring an open lobby, public records access and municipal court and community room. Most of all, this is about our citizens, and we appreciate the citizens for your diligence and providing the tax dollars that provide this police station so we can better serve and protect you."

The new facility will feature secure entrances, a classroom, crime lab, virtual training space, a community room and an indoor firearms range. The range will also be shared with other law enforcement partners, according to the city.

"From the onset, our focus has been on providing effective, efficient service to the citizens of Brentwood while providing safety to our officers and security for our police fleet and equipment," Police Chief Jeff Hughes said. "By being located close to the geographical center of the city, officers will have easier access to the major thoroughfares—including I-65—which will improve our overall average response time in all areas of the city. This facility will provide space where officers can learn and train under one roof and better prepare themselves to serve the citizens of Brentwood."

Designs for the new building were developed by Nashville-based group The Architect Workshop and construction will be managed by Brentwood-based firm The Parent Co.

City Manager Kirk Bednar said construction on the facility will begin soon after the groundbreaking. The building is slated to be complete in early 2021, according to the city.
