KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

Kansas City, KS police have a new south patrol headquarters.

The station is right in the heart of the Argentine neighborhood at 21st Street and Metropolitan Avenue.

It is a major upgrade from past headquarters, measuring at 6,500-square-feet of space.

Its opening signifies a new era for KCK police.

“I think we’re coming from a building that was probably at least 100 years old. We had maybe a 1,000-square-foot,” Mjr. Kent Anderson speculated.

Anderson said the high-tech upgrades will help with training and enforcement of troops.

“It’s pretty much state of the art. We’ll have the Wi-Fi downloads for the body cameras and our video cameras in our vehicles, so it’s going to be top of the line,” he explained.

And it will all help keep the public safe.

The mayor and police chief spoke Monday about the future of KCK and the benefits the new station will bring.

The police department is not the only organization that can take advantage of the new space. There are also rooms for the community to rent out.
