The City of Dublin will hold Grand Opening Celebration of its new Public Safety Complex, located at 6361 Clark Avenue, on Saturday, February 22, at 11:00 a.m. The event includes a ribbon-cutting ceremony, facility tours, and a free barbecue lunch, provided by the Dublin Lions Club.
The new police headquarters, located at the corner of Clark Avenue and Dublin Boulevard, will anchor the Public Safety Complex, which includes the existing Alameda County Fire Department administrative offices. The new offices will house Police Services administration, operations, and other essential-service functions. The facility will also include a much larger Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and briefing/training room than what was previously utilized at Dublin Civic Center.
Alameda County Fire Department moved into their administrative offices at the Public Safety Complex in Spring 2014. They relocated temporarily while the Dublin Police portion of the building was being constructed.
A new public art piece, representing both Police and Fire, will also be unveiled at the Grand Opening celebration. The aluminum art piece, Ribbon, created by artist Gordon Huether, stands 17-feet tall, and is inset with blue and red dichroic glass, as a metaphor for Police and Fire, with the words, Commitment, Honor, Integrity, and Trust, accompanying the sculpture to remind the public of the mission and values of both departments.
