Public Safety Building
Welcome to Public Safety Building
In November 2009, more than 65 percent of Salt Lake City voters approved a $125 million general obligation bond to fund the construction of a new Public Safety Building. The facility, which includes a new Emergency Operations Center, will serve Salt Lake City residents, visitors and businesses and better meet the needs of Utah’s Capital City. The project is expected to be completed by 2013.
“We are excited to begin the process of construction of the Public Safety Building. I promise that this construction process will be transparent and efficient. It will be on time, on budget and a beautiful green building that this City can be proud of.” - Mayor Ralph Becker
Countdown to the Grand Opening of the New Public Safety Building!
• Summer 2013- Grand opening events to include a ribbon cutting ceremony, installation of a time capsule and opening of a new public safety museum.
The Virtual Animation Tour of the new Public Safety Building.
This stunning Virtual Tour will allow you to experience the energy efficient Public Safety Building from every angle, both inside and outside. Viewers will be able to virtually fly through the new public lobby, plaza and festival space, and Emergency Operations Center.
In police jargon, ten-codes are used for voice communications to denote commonly used phrases. For example, asking for an officer’s location would be “What’s your 10-20?” Use of ten-codes is intended to facilitate clear, quick and concise communication between law enforcement officers. When the new Public Safety Building opens, officers located at the Public Safety Building will respond with “10-19” as their location.
The Public Safety Building, which will be known as “10-19,” will
physically open in the spring of 2013. But the public doesn’t need
to wait two years to tour the building. Keeping with the
environmental and technological cutting- edge that has defined this
project, the first glimpse of our City’s new public asset can be
viewed in a new virtual animation online tour."
