Public Safety Building

city of yelm

Richard Murakami provided planning and architectural services for this new Police, Municipal Court, and Emergency Command Center. The team worked with the City’s steering committee to develop space needs, master planning the entire block in anticipation of the eventual addition of a City Hall to round out the civic campus.


The 12,000 sf complex includes a police station, emergency operations center, court administrative services and court room services, and city council chamber. Additional features include sally port, evidence storage, outside storage facilities and ancillary site development. The facility is located within the downtown core of Yelm and is the first building to be built on their civic campus block.
