Rock County Law Enforcement Center

Luverne, MN | Government + Cultural

Overview

ISG worked with Rock County to deliver designs for a new law enforcement center that is more accessible and cost-effective.


Opportunity

Rock County needed to determine the best option to construct a larger law enforcement facility than its existing space.

Solution

Rock County needed to determine if it should expand its existing Justice Center housed in its historic courthouse or build a new facility. Through a collaborative process, it was determined that a new building would be more cost-effective, have greater accessibility for County residents, and better accommodate future growth. The new facility houses the County dispatch, offices for County law enforcement officials and investigators, holding cells, evidence storage, squad room, and training room. Because operational costs of the building were also important in choosing a new building, a geothermal heat pump was included in the mechanical system to save money and lower life-cycle costs.
