UP celebrates new police station with public event

The City of University Place welcomes the public for an open house and tours of its new police station on Thursday at 4 p.m. The headquarters opened for business at the end of November. It’s located on the second floor of the Town Center Civic Building, 3609 Market Place West, Suite 201.

The Police Department, which is a detachment of the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, was previously located in the Public Safety Building at 3631 Drexler Drive West. The police force had been roommates there with West Pierce Fire & Rescue, and both agencies decided they needed more space.

Cost constraints kept the city from its original plan of putting the police station on the ground floor of the Civic Building, next to the UP library branch that opened last winter. There’s still a possibility police could move downstairs at a later date.
