Motorcyle Police and Crime Lab ($165 million)
What improvements will be made to the motorcycle police and crime lab facilities?
ESER 2014 will relocate the motorcycle police and the crime lab to a single site located at 1995 Evans Avenue in Mission Bay. The project involves the demolition of the existing four structures at the current site on Evans and the construction of a new, four-story 90,000 square foot building, along with a separate, two-story 42,000 square foot parking structure. Construction of the new facilities could begin in 2016.
This first responder project would be designed to resist the forces of a major earthquake and remain appropriately operational. It would include provision for adequate drinking and fire suppression water, power, and sanitary sewage storage throughout the period of time during which the building may have to operate off the grid.
What are the benefits of relocating these crucial facilities?
Relocating the motorcycle police will reduce injuries, deaths and property damage by providing first responders with equipment and infrastructure they need to safeguard our communities. An improved, seismically safe facility will expedite our recovery after an event, reducing crime, preserving jobs, and ensuring the rapid recovery of San Francisco in the following weeks and months.
For the crime lab, relocation will allow avoiding disruptions to the in-house lab work. It would provide uninterrupted services to residents, space for new employees, ensure the work of both offices meets national accreditation, modernize the
facilities to accommodate evolving technologies, practices, and science, and enhance the processing of caseloads and allows both laboratories to share important data results. It would also allow for expedited exoneration of innocent people.
