In a statement on social media, TPD said they expect to be at the new location for “approximately two years” or until “needed renovations and repairs” are completed.
TPD’s new headquarters officially opened to the public on Jan. 13.
Tuscaloosa police spokeswoman Lt. Teena Richardson said the move will not affect TPD’s ability to respond to calls, and all operations will function as normal. The Hargrove Road E. facility will house police administration, the records department and the traffic and investigative divisions.
Any police-related business will be taken care of at the new location, though police reports can be filed at the East, West, or Downtown Tuscaloosa Police Department precincts.
