Police Headquarters

port of seattle

Located at Sea-Tac International Airport on the 3rd and 4th floors of the original 1940's terminal building, this 45,000 square foot Police Headquarters Facility serves as the central location for law enforcement personnel serving all Port-owned properties, including the Airport and the Sea Port.

Programming and a space needs analysis was provided as well as tours of comparable Category X airport police facilities in the US and Canada. This was followed by the design of the Port of Seattle’s Police Facility which accommodates Police Administration, Emergency Command Center, Training Center, investigations, temporary evidence storage/processing, patrol briefing/ debriefing, temporary detention, lockers/showers, fitness facilities, multi-purpose meeting spaces, bomb squad and bomb robot, and sallyport. It also accommodates the needs of partnering agencies such as the FBI and TSA.

The design of this facility needed to take into account that the construction would take place within the larger context of the 24/7 operations of a major international airport.
