The City of Greenville recently requested $27 million in funds to be allocated to purchase + renovate a building on the Fluor Daniel Campus (located at the intersection of Halton Road and Mall Connector Road) to serve as the new Public Safety Complex, housing Greenville Police Department, Fire Department and Municipal Court

So, why do the departments need to move

Police

The Greenville Police Department + Greenville County Sheriff‘s office currently share one, 45-year-old space — the Law Enforcement Center that has maxed out its electrical supply and space to accommodate employees comfortably. Parking is limited, and overall building conditions are poor.

Fire

The Fire Administration is currently split across two locations: one at City Hall + one at the Greenville Convention Center. Besides the challenge of meeting as a full staff in one space, the administration is out of space for housing equipment like PPE, and has inadequate restroom facilities.

Municipal Court

The Court’s building is over 80 years old (constructed right after WWII), lacks parking and flooded in August after a sewer backup

What does this new location have that the current locations don’t? Well, a lot, but specifically: 

  • A single building with 126,000 sqft of space
  • Over 1,000 parking spaces
  • Updated conditions + facilities dating back to 2014 (overall building was constructed in the early 90s.)
  • 12 acres of land 

If approved by Grenville City Council, the city will close on the building at the end of this year — an $18.9 million sale — and begin the $8.1 million worth of renovations around the spring or summer of next year.
