Charlotte City Council has approved nearly $1 million for safety upgrades to the headquarters of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department on East Trade St. and approved construction contract for new station.

Upgrades include ballistic resistant doors and windows, a larger public vestibule, a new customer service counter and waiting room and minor electrical and mechanical updates, reports the Charlotte Observer.

Catalyst Construction Co. was awarded a $950,280 contract for the safety upgrades project.

In addition, the city council also approved a more than $9.5 million contract with Miles-McClellan Construction Co.  for the new location of CMPD’s University City Division Station.

The division will move into the planned 16,081-sq.-ft. facility at 8452 N. Tryon St. The project is expected to be completed in late 2020.
