Georgetown, South Carolina

City of Georgetown Police Department & Municipal Court

The new police station and city courtroom is a multi-use facility that combines related public service functions in a single building. The shared public entrance presents the appropriate upscale civic image while maintaining a neighborhood scale by utilizing a public plaza, a columned porch, and an expanded glass enclosed lobby. Some of the more important aspects of the plan are clear separation of security zones, functional hierarchy within the police station and court and police interface for shared functions. The initial concept accommodates a 4,000 square foot wing for the County Emergency Operations Center.
