Eight years and about $9.45 million later, the City of Warner Robins cut the ribbon on the new Law Enforcement Center Tuesday.
It will replace a 1960's era police station, that couldn't handle modern technology or even basic functions. The roof leaks, and the air conditioner frequently dies, predictably, on the hottest summer days.
After all the work, the disagreements about location, design and money, city leaders finally saw their efforts pay off.
The building is two stories and 42,000 square feet.
Police Chief Brett Evans says it will allow his officers to do their job to the best of their ability.
He said, "Were able to pull together the professional staff and the equipment we have, and put it together in one place now. We can actually do the things were out here to do."
More than 100 people packed into the LEC's roll call room to applaud the buildings completion.
