JE Dunn completed the Leon Mercer Jordan Campus, which consists of a 56,000 SF Crime Lab with an additional 12,000 SF property evidence depository, a 23,000 SF patrol station with a 12,000 SF community center and a 5,000 SF central utility plant that serves the entire 18-arce campus.
The crime lab includes administrative departments, building/technical support, chemistry lab, crime scene lab, DNA lab, digital forensics lab, DVA/trace evidence lab, evidence intake, fire arms lab and indoor firing range, latent and ten prints lab and biology lab. The Property Evidence Depository is state-of-the-art with mobile shelving, evidence lockers and inventory system. This building consolidated three previous facilities into one.
The patrol station includes a detention area with four holding cells, sallyport, roll call room, firearm storage, property crimes, weightlifting/cardio/training room, locker rooms and an administrative area. The community center includes a gymnasium with basketball courts, community meeting room, computer lab, and a concessions area for use by the community, police and crime lab staff. This is open to the public and is intended to help bridge the gap between the Kansas City Police Department and the community.
The parking area consists of all surface lots. Security measures and access controls are in effect in each building.
