The building was designed to enhance police operations and community policing services and is home to the Fort Collins Police Museum, a 1900 square-foot community room, an enhanced crime laboratory, property and evidence processing and storage, a communications center, an Emergency Operations Center, training facilities, a detention center with eight cells as well as providing space for patrol, investigations, records, and administrative functions.

For the employees who work in the facility, the building interior provides a very secure yet "human" environment. From the outside, plains architecture featuring a long low roof line creates a quite, protective presence. The soft geometry of the covered walkway and open interface of the Community Room, with the public art work interwoven between, provide a clear and welcoming entry to the public. Landscaping contributes to the personality of the facility.
