In 2019, the City contracted with Matrix Consulting Group to perform a City-wide Staffing and Facility Needs Assessment. Matrix provided their final report in June of 2020 and indicated that the City facility in most need of replacement was the police station and jail facility. The new City of Gulf Shores Justice Center will combine the Police Department, Jail, and Municipal Courts under one roof. This project will provide significant enhancements for the Police Department, providing a modern up-to-date facility that will adequately fulfill the needs of the department.
The proposed location for the new facility is at the west of the intersection of Cotton Creek Dr. and Medical Village Boulevard.
Design: Estimated to be complete by Spring 2022
