The St. Gabriel Police Department’s new headquarters stands as a remarkable testament to progress and modernization, marking a significant milestone for the City of St. Gabriel. This state-of-the-art facility is the first of its kind in the city, a symbol of its commitment to enhancing law enforcement capabilities.
The transformation of the existing headquarters from a renovated residential structure into a spacious 9,000-square-foot building is nothing short of impressive. This new space includes a contemporary squad room, thoughtfully designed offices for sergeants and detectives, a well-equipped fitness room, and a welcoming break area. Moreover, the booking and evidence section has been thoughtfully designed to house holding cells and interview rooms, ensuring the secure and efficient handling of detainees and evidence.
For the dedicated officers of the St. Gabriel Police Department, this new headquarters has been a long-awaited solution to their challenges. The previous sub-standard location lacked the capacity to detain prisoners, making this upgrade not just a necessity but a symbol of the city’s commitment to maintaining its already impressive low crime rate—a paramount concern for the community.
In early 2016, the project was successfully completed, and the new headquarters now stands as a beacon of progress and a testament to the city’s dedication to public safety. It represents a significant step forward in empowering law enforcement to continue their vital work of safeguarding the community.
