TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - The new Tupelo Police Department’s $10 million headquarters building is taking shape.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1WPHZn3) the stonework on the exterior of the two-story structure is essentially complete. The recently installed concrete curbing shows the layout of the parking lot and landscaping areas.

Work on the interior of the 34,000-square-foot building is on schedule for the department to move in within three months.

Police Chief Bart Aguirre says most of the drywall is up and painted, giving visitors a better idea of the layout. Workers have installed the drop ceiling and lights on the second floor. The elevator has been installed, but won’t be operational until most of the construction and finish work is completed.

The city broke ground on the complex in April 2015.
