The Winston-Salem Police Department is using one of three police substations that is being financed by bonds approved in the November 2014 bond referendum now that it has opened. A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the District 2 Police Station (Lucia Building) at 1539 Waughtown St. was held Thursday, April 13.

The budget for the renovation project was $1.98 million. This is the first of the three to open.

“This police district office will improve on citizen and police relations and reduce police response time to neighbors in this community,” said Council Member James Taylor Jr., who is the council member for the Southeast Ward, which is where the substation is located.

Construction on the District 3 station is expected to be complete by 2017 as well as the District 1 station located on North Point Boulevard.
