Creating a safe, efficient working environment for police and citizens

Colliers was engaged to provide project management services for the design and construction of a new 35,000 gsf police barracks and land development to consolidate services in the southern portion of the State and create a safe, efficient working environment for State Police personnel and citizens.

The Rhode Island State Police (RISP) is closing their existing undersized and outdated barracks, built in the 1930s, located in Hope Valley (4,160 gsf) and Wickford (3,544 gsf) and will vacate these facilities upon completion of the New Southern Barracks.

The new police barracks will also contain an outbuilding and new canine kennel/training facility.
