Open houses will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. July 23 and 25.

Two months after the Burlington Police Department moved to its new station on Jefferson Street, the public has been invited on a tour.

From 3 to 7 p.m. July 23 and 25, tours will be held at the former U.S. Bank building downtown at 201 Jefferson St. Members of the public interested in seeing the renovated station should arrive at the main entrance on Jefferson Street during the designated tour times.

Police officers and administrative/command staff will take groups of 10 to 15 people through the patrol division, records department, criminal investigations and all common areas. Tours will last 15 to 20 minutes.

The three-floor building is handicap accessible.

BPD has been in its new $5.2 million station, formerly at 424 North 3rd St., since May 25. It is more than two times the size of the old building, which currently sits vacant but may be demolished to make room for a downtown hotel.

In 2015, Burlington voters approved a bond measure for the city to borrow up to $4 million for a new police department. The actual borrowed amount landed around $2.2 million, which city manager Jim Ferneau expects to be paid off by 2036.

Questions about the public tours can be directed to the police administration department at (319) 753-8355.
