BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Wednesday morning, the Broken Arrow Police and Fire Departments will invite the public into their new home for a look around.
There's a ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for 9:30 a.m., at the Broken Arrow Public Safety Complex, 1101 N. 6th Street.
Public tours begin at 10:00 a.m. and go until noon.
Crime Prevention Specialist Lisa Ford tells KRMG the city purchased the property from the federal government
It was formerly an Armed Forces Reserve Center, and the city got a great deal -- it cost a dollar.
Of course, a lot of work had to be done to convert it into the state-of-the-art facility that it has become.
It cost about $7 million to do all the work on the building.
Citizens approved a bond issue to pay for the upgrades and now, Ford says, they'll all be a little safer.
Just as importantly, there's room to grow in the new facility, which is likely to happen because the city itself continues to grow.
