Bureau County Law Enforcement Center Study

Princeton, IL

BKV Group completed a study to show how a county-owned, former office and warehouse could be reused for a law enforcement center, including a sheriff’s office, 911 communications center and attached 80-bed jail. The study showed that the building and property allowed for the reuse of and remodeling of the building with an addition at a cost savings of more than $3.3 million versus new construction.

The new 80-bed jail addition includes a drive-through, two-lane sallyport, pre-booking center with medical evaluation room, intoxilator room, and after-hours visiting. The facility also features an intake/release center; kitchen and laundry; recreation space; program space; medical suite; central control; contact and non-contact professional visitation; public video visitation; Sheriff’s Office, Training Center, and 911 Communications Center.
