TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Construction on a new $22 million headquarters for the Marana Police Department is set to start next summer.

Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/2gx2iDC ) that the police station will be built on the existing Marana Municipal Complex.

Sgt. Chris Warren says the new facility will allow for more space for training for the department’s 89 sworn officers and cooperation with other law enforcement agencies.

The new 54,000-square-foot building features space for the police department to have its own shooting range, indoor and outdoor areas for police dogs and separate holding cells for adults and juveniles. It will also include community rooms available for public use.

Officials say funds for the new police station will come from a half-cent sales tax, the town’s general fund and money that has been seized during criminal investigations.
