Project 30: Expansion of Property & Evidence Facility

Project Summary

At the Athens-Clarke County jail site, Project 30 provided for the construction of a new evidence facility to house property, evidence materials and records of the Athens-Clarke County Police Department in a centralized and climate controlled facility for adequately meeting inventory and maintenance requirements of such materials. The older facility was at capacity and in order to maintain proper storage of evidence, the new facility was built and expanded to house a higher capacity of evidence. Office space, a conference room, a two-story storage room, processing room, and a vehicle processing garage were built in the facility. There are different storage options for drugs, jewelry, guns and cash in a two-story secure vault, with the drug processing area being located near ventilation. The new facility provided over 5,000 sq. ft. of new storage space.
