Town of Greece Police Headquarters

Town of Greece Police to Serve and Protect Community from New, State-of-the-Art Headquarters

The Town of Greece’s existing precinct #1 headquarters building was originally designed as a wastewater treatment facility. Driven by the much-needed replacement of this building, and with planning and development in the works for over two decades, a new police headquarters facility became a reality for the Town of Greece in spring of 2017.

The Town’s goal was reached through the construction of a state-of-the-art, efficient, and, most importantly, safe police headquarters building proper for the Greece Police Department to conduct professional police work well into the 21st century. The new facility, officially named the Gerald D. Phelan Police Headquarters, was designed to accommodate the Police Department’s 100 sworn officers that patrol and protect 42 square miles of land and serve a population of approximately 100,000 Town of Greece residents.

This was accomplished through the programing of 27,000 sq. ft. and the development a two-story, steel and masonry structure that houses a variety of police services, including police administration, booking and road patrol, evidence and property processing, criminal investigation, and civil staff services.

Efficient police operations were also met through the design of a fully equipped roll call room placed adjacent to a large men’s and women’s locker room complete with custom law enforcement lockers; the development of a modern booking area with six individual holding cells and one group holding cell, all of which conform to the mandates of the New York Commission of Corrections; a modern evidence laboratory placed adjacent to a large evidence/property storage room; a two-car evidence garage; and a four-car sally port. In addition, all administrative offices were strategically placed on the second floor, which also includes the Chief’s suite, criminal investigation, quartermaster, armory, and interview rooms.

Town of Greece Embraces Greek Revival Style

Special attention was given to the design of the police headquarters’ entrance lobby for the purpose of creating a welcoming and inviting focal point for the public to utilize and connect with the Police Department.

This was accomplished through the design of a Greek Revival façade with enhanced lighting, the provision of select interior finishes, and the creation of custom display art, including a ten-foot-long panel system featuring a collage of historic Greece Police photographs and a custom Greece Police stainless steel police patch.

Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Greece Police Headquarters

On a brisk day in January 2016, a groundbreaking ceremony was held at the future site of the new Greece Police Headquarters on the Greece Town Campus on Vince Tofany Boulevard!

Project stakeholders gathered in light flurries to celebrate the new, state-of-the-art facility soon to be under construction. Town Supervisor Bill Reilich, Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo, and Police Chief Patrick Phelan spoke about this exciting and long-awaited project.
