Police Station Update

The Battle Creek Police Department is moving! 

In mid-May 2017 officials began an 18-month or so construction process across Patterson Way from the current station, 20 N. Division St. This location, most recently a parking lot and at 34 N. Division, actually was the location of our previous police station.

Patterson Way is now closed to thru traffic between Division Street and East Michigan Avenue. You can still access City Hall via both driveways, as well as the handicapped/public parking to the Calhoun County Justice Center, off Patterson. 

In July 2018, we have begun marking furniture, and moving items across the street, as we prepare to move our police operations!

We expect to be moved over, and inviting you to a grand opening celebration, in August 2018. Stay tuned for tour times. We hope you'll join us to check out our excellent new spaces.

Project history


City officials visited with Neighborhood Planning Councils, offered station tours, and participated in community conversations to collect your input on the future of our police station.

The current location, opened in the early 1970s, was assessed by architects. Age and lack of space contribute to issues that have resulted in the $15.5 million new building. It will accommodate our staff and their space/storage needs, as well as offer new community spaces where we can meet with our neighbors and visitors, improving our connections to the community.

Chief Jim Blocker also has presented to the City Commission information on the current station and goals for a new station, which you can view by clicking on this link.
