The city of Dublin is celebrating the grand opening of its new police headquarters with a ribbon-cutting ceremony next Saturday (Feb. 22), two years after construction on the complex started.

Located at the corner of Dublin Boulevard and Clark Avenue, the new Public Safety Complex, as it is officially known, houses essential functions like Dublin Police Services administration and an expanded Emergency Operations Center that is much larger than the former one at Dublin Civic Center.

Construction of the $15 million project involved the demolition of two buildings and renovating and rebuilding two others.

There is also a briefing and training room and administrative offices for Alameda County Fire Department personnel onsite. Staff moved in during 2014 and temporarily relocated while the part of the building serving Dublin police was being built.

A new Cultural Arts Center will eventually move into the lower level of the current police service building at Dublin Civic Center.

A new public art piece named “Ribbon” will also be unveiled at the event. The 17-foot-high aluminum sculpture by Napa artist Gordon Huether features inlaid blue and red dichroic glass and the words “commitment”, “honor”, “integrity” and “trust”. It is meant to serve as a metaphor for police and firefighters, according to city officials, and “to remind the public of the mission and values of both departments.”

The grand-opening will take place Saturday (Feb. 22), starting 11 a.m. at the new Public Safety Complex in Dublin, 6361 Clark Ave. There is no admission to attend the event, which also includes facility tours and a free barbecue lunch provided by the Dublin Lions Club.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

Isn't the police force in Dublin staffed by Alameda County Sheriff deputies?
Or, are there Dublin police officers employed by the city of Dublin and are a Dublin police force, assisted by Alameda County sheriff deputies?

Would the Weekly or someone sort this out? If the police force in Dublin is 100% staffed by Alameda County deputies, wouldn't this be considered a Alameda County sheriff satellite facility, or sub station?
